10th June

A so so kind of day with a light NW breeze and plenty of cloud but it remained dry; not much to mention with it feeling more and more like spring is now over and we’ve moved straight into late summer with nothing in between as gangs of young Starlings are roving across the island and non / failed breeding Lapwings and Curlews are starting to form bigger and bigger flocks.   Birds of note included the Whooper Swan and Barnacle Goose, a Heron and a Black-tailed Godwit while the moth trap produced its first double figure total – 12 Flame Shoulders, 4 Silver Ground Carpets and an Angle Shades. 

Some big wader chicks are now running around
