10th June

Just as a very pleasantly fair day was about to written off from the birding point of view so the latest fly-by oddity showed up; not altogether surprisingly it was another Bee-eater that was first heard over Top Fields and shortly afterwards headed south high over the Obs. The only other news worth a mention was of 2 Balearic Shearwaters through off the Bill.

By day, there looked to be a new arrival of Painted Ladys everywhere, whilst Hummingbird Hawk-moths included 2 at Southwell and 1 at the Obs. Two Delicates at the Grove and singles of Orange Footman at Southwell and the Obs were the pick of the overnight immigrant moth captures; commoner species at the Obs included 27 Rusty-dot Pearl, 8 Diamond-back Moth and a Pearly Underwing.
