8th June

Another very minor flurry of migrants today - pointedly not including the rarity that was wished for, if not expected, following the wind having shifted into the east. Singletons at the Bill included a Little Egret, a Reed Warbler, a Willow Warbler and a Spotted Flycatcher, whilst another Spotted Flycatcher passed through at Blacknor. Two Black-headed Gulls through off the Bill were mirrored by another single - together with a Mediterranean Gull - fresh in at Ferrybridge, where 6 Sanderling, 2 Shelducks and 2 Dunlin were also present.

Bordered Straws and Small Mottled Willows again provided the best of the overnight immigrant moth quality: 4 Small Mottled Willow and 3 Bordered Straw were caught at the Obs and additional single Small Mottled Willows at Sweethill and the Grove.
