Day Off

NW 2 murkey with sunshine remaining cool 0700-0945
Had an enforced day off today so popped down to SBO first (ish) thing. Bit of bird movement and a couple of FotS but nothing unexpected- Linnet 281w, Goldfnch 25w, Mipit 10w, Swallow 8w, Pied Wag 3w, Yellow wagtail 1w, Carrion Crow 6w, Common Scoter 50w, Eider 17e, Shelduck 2e, Sandwich Tern 10w and Common Tern 1w. Present on the patch were Wheatear 2, Lesser Whitethroat 2, Barn Owl and a brief Merlin.
Back home the Little Owl is still ranging along the hedgerow but with an incresed northerly it neither felt or looked like it was going to be a big bird day.
Fared alittle better on the moth front last night with some distinctive, enigmatic species starting to occur now.
