Only 1 moth species new for the year since my last post, the micro: E. sulphurella. Today at Dunge it was generally sunny but became more windy as the day went on. Common Tern and Water Rail were seen on the ARC pit. Round at the Lighthouse Garden a Redstart showed well along with about 3 Firecrests, 3 Chiffchaffs and 2 Goldcrests. We only managed brief views of the 2 Continental Coal Tits that were in that area. Three Black Redstarts showed in the Observatory Moat. About 3 Common Buzzards were seen, of which 1 flew over the Power Station. There was little at the patch and after lunch on the RSPB reserve there were 3 Smew and 3 Little Egrets near Boulderwall Farm, where a Tree Sparrow was at the feeders.
