More thick mist early on, however today the sun eventually burnt through by mid by the morning resulting in a cloudless, sunny day marred only by yhe retention of that cool northerly breeze still. From the garden we finally managed some Marsh Harriers with 4 (1+2+1) moving east, all of the non adult/female variety, but the supporting cast was virtually non existant- House Martin 1, Swallow 2, Common Buzzard 2 (local), Sprawk c 10, Kestrel 4, Lesser Black-backed Gull 7N, Mistle Thrush 2 S,

Yellowhammer along the track

Had the moth trap running last night, again for the duration, with numbers remaining low-
Bright-line Brown-eye 1 MYL 13
Common Quaker 2
Hebrew Character 2
Clouded Drab 2

Bright-line Brown-eye

It wasn't til later in the day that I discovered the sighting of the day however with this , my first Great Prominant that was snuggled down on the fence near the trap- what a fine wee beasty!
