7th June

Despite drearier conditions with some light rain for a time during the morning there were few surprises amongst what little was on offer at the Bill, that included 4 Chiffchaffs, 2 Lapwings, a Reed Warbler and a Blackcap on the land, another Hobby through overhead and a light trickle of Manx Shearwaters, 6 Common Scoter and 6 Dunlin through on the sea.

Another good overnight catch of moths at the Obs included 12 Diamond-back Moth, 8 Silver Y, 7 Rusty-dot Pearl, 3 Orange Footman and singles of Bordered White, Dark Sword Grass and Cream-bordered Green Pea by way of immigrants/dispersers.

Apologies to those who've sent us photos in recent days that we still haven't posted - we will try and catch up once we've worked out how to fit 48 hours of jobs/fun into a 24 hour day.
