No trap due to rain last night but I made the weekly Dunge trip today. There wasn't much on the ARC pit but in the Hanson hide I found a micro moth which was new for me: Caloptilia stigmatella. On to the Desert and Trapping Area where the Wood Lark showed well. We then spent some time unsuccessfully trying to find one of the Yellow-browed Warblers. About 10 Ring Ouzels were seen in flight arouind the area. After lunch we saw a couple of Arctic Skuas at the fishing boats with just a few Sandwich terns. A lone Common Scoter and 7 Brent Geese also flew past. Back on the RSPB Reserve the Cattle Egret showed well and another 5 Ring Ouzels flew overhead. Finally the Great White Egret showed well on Hooker's.
