7th - 8th August

A quiet couple of days with Storm Petrel ringing taking priority with 120 caught over the last two nights in the calm conditions; other birds included 4 Ruff again while 6 Swifts and two House Martins passed through on the 7th and a group of 6 Herons, a Common Redpoll and single Wood Sandpiper and Greenshank seen on the 8th.

The calm conditions have also been good for moth catching over the last few days including this Burnished Brass in amongst the hundreds of Dark Arches and Ingrailed Clays
