A hot night produced 89 moths of 41 species this morning with Mullein Wave, Small Dusty Wave, and Sharp-angled Peacock all new for the year. Today at Dunge in very hot weather there were 2 LRPs and a Black-tailed Godwit on the ARC pit. The sea was quiet at the Fishing Boats but we did see 2 Black Terns go past and an Arctic Skua was lingering offshore. On the main part of the RSPB reserve in the afternoon there were 4 Great White Egrets, 1 Hobby, another Black Tern, 1 Common Sandpiper, 2 Little Stints, 1 Dunlin, 2 Green Sandpipers (Hayfields), 1 Wood Sandpiper (Hookers), 1 Marsh Harrier, 2 Buzzards, with 2 Wheatears on the return trail. A Great Green Bush-cricket was also seen.
