Bitsy odds and ends on land and sea today: 34 Mediterranean Gulls, 15 Manx Shearwaters, 6 Yellow-legged Gulls and 5 Sandwich Terns through or lingering off the Bill, 11 Sand Martins and singles of Ringed Plover, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Lesser Whitethroat on/overhead on the land there and 12 Dunlin, 9 Sandwich Terns, 5 Curlew, 4 Yellow-legged Gulls and 2 Little Ringed Plovers at Ferrybridge.

A small increase in Diamond-back Moths - including 79 at the Obs - was the only event of note from overnight mothing.
