Yesterday morning Batia lunaris and Holly Tortrix were new for the year. Then I spent the day at Dunge where it was very quiet birdwise with a solitary Hobby,  couple of singing Lesser Whitethroats and a few Sand Martins the main interest. At the ARC Pit we photographed a newly emerged Emperor Dragonfly and the macropterous form of a female Roesel's Bush-cricket. I also saw my first Ruddy Darters and Gatekeepers of the year. Brown Hawkers were also fairly common. This morning the trap produced 35 moths of 19 species with The Fern and Yellow Shell both new for the year.
