3rd July

Still very uneventful even though there was marked improvement in the weather, with early drizzle giving way to a lovely warm, sunny afternoon and evening. The only worthwhile reports from the Bill were of 64 Common Scoter, 10 Manx Shearwaters, a Mediterranean Gull, a Sandwich Tern and a Puffin through on the sea. The Ferrybridge Mediterranean Gull tally increased to 16.

Immigrant moths in the Obs garden traps consisted of just 5 Rusty-dot Pearl and a Diamond-back Moth.
