29th August


A reminder that there's an In Focus field event at the Obs between 10am and 4pm this Saturday, 31st August.

Just a brief update as we're a bit pushed for time this evening. A quieter day for numbers with the freshening southwesterly and clear skies that arrived in the wake of last evening's drizzly rain seeing many migrants - particularly the bulk of the Yellow Wagtails - move on. A Wryneck trapped in the Crown Estate Field was the best of the day's newcomers.

The fifth Passenger for Portland from the Obs traps was the pick of the night's moth catch.
