9th June

Not for want of trying, the June rarities are proving hard to come by at the moment, with precious little of note on the land today bar a Willow Warbler at Blacknor. Some interest was salvaged from the sea, with 115 Manx Shearwaters, 29 Common Scoter, 11 commic terns, 5 Balearic Shearwaters, 2 Great Skuas and a Red-throated Diver through off the Bill.

Moth immigration continued to tick over, with 22 Rusty-dot Pearl, 8 Diamond-back Moth and singles of Orange Footman, Clouded Buff, Pearly Underwing and Silver Y at the Obs; elsewhere, singles of Cream-bordered Green Pea and Orange Footman at Southwell and Dark Pine Knot-horn Dioryctria abietella at Weston were of note.
