27th June

Pretty quiet on the bird front today. A Grey Wagtail was the only migrant/disperser of interest at the Bill, where 2 Chiffchaffs and a Blackcap lingered on, 7 Common Scoter, 4 Manx Shearwaters and a Mediterranean Gull passed through on the sea and at least 34 Common Terns were feeding offshore.

After a few slow-ish nights there was a hint of moth immigration picking up, with 27 Silver Y in one trap at the Grove and improved variety - including a single Dark Pine Knot-horn - at the Obs.
