20th June

Reed Warblers have been so relatively frequent this month that another 2 new arrivals at the Obs today didn't come as too much of a surprise. Singles of Grey Wagtail and Blackcap were the only other migrants of note at the Bill, where singles of Arctic Skua and Great Skua also passed by on the sea.

A Bordered Straw at Reap Lane was the pick of the night's immigrant moth catch.

Always a feast or famine immigrant at Portland, Bordered Straws have been completely absent for three consecutive seasons - with any luck last night's single at Reap Lane will prove to the first of a few this year © Martin Cade/John Lucas:
