10th June

With the supply of routine migrants having dwindled it was fortunate that the ever-reliable Great Spotted Cuckoo was still about to save the day. An unseasonable Grey Wagtail over the Bill was the only worthwhile newcomer there, where 25 Common Scoter, 11 Manx Shearwaters, 2 Sandwich Terns and a Mediterranean Gull through on the sea filled a few more lines on the list.

Although Diamond-back Moths were still conspicuously numerous by day a rather precipitous drop in numbers in the moth-traps saw example overnight totals of  just 136 from the five traps at the Obs and 210 and 55 respectively from the single traps at the Grove and Sweethill; a Delicate was a first for the year at the Obs but other routine immigrants were almost entirely absent.
