Cold nights have kept moth numbers low but it was slightly milder last night with Red Twin-spot Carpet and Angle Shades new for the year. At Dungeness on Wednesday it was cold and windy. At the patch Common Terns were new for the year and a couple of Sand Martins were over the ARC pit where a Greenshank was heard flying over. The Ring-necked Duck was in its usual place. On the New Diggings 2 Slavonian Grebes were in summer plumage and a Black-necked Grebe was also there but distant.
