Rain late last night combined with an E4 had me out early for a short wander to the coast path to see if any migrants were around.

The best I could manage was a 1st summer Med Gull, a male Brambling and the Green Woodpecker again in the copse next to our garden. A nice enough cast, I suppose, but not quite what I had in mind.

Only the gull sat for pics and they aren't up to much...

The moth trap had a similar catch to yesterday for the Garden Moth Survey with -

2179 Pine Beauty 1
2187 Common Quaker 6
2189 Twin spotted Quaker 1
2190 Hebrew Character 20

28 moths of 4 species.

I was also expectant of some migrants this morning Stewart. But nothing new was to be found. I`m still waiting for the Sand Marts to be seen at Cortonwood. They`re everywhere else.
