10th June

On an increasingly warm and sunny day the only migrant interest concerned 2 more new Chiffchaffs at the Obs, a Hobby thorough at Southwell, 25 Common Scoter through off the Bill and 3 Dunlin at Ferrybridge.

The first Silver-studded Blues of the year were on the wing at Tout Quarry.

Although the moth-traps remain very busy with resident fare there seems to be very little immigration afoot: 9 Rusty-dot Pearl, 7 Diamond-back Moth and 5 Silver Y constituted the night's tally at the Obs.
