Good moth numbers have continued the last few days with species new for the year including: Varied Coronet, Small Phoenix, Burnished Brass, Maiden's Blush, The Flame, Foxglove Pug, and the first Large Yellow Underwing of the year. On Friday the weather at Dunge was Sunny with a stiff breeze, but we struggled to find much in the way of birds. Most interesting was the Great White Egret showing the pink legs and dark bill of its breeding plumage. There are now a few insects about including lots of Four-spotted Chasers, and near the Old Lighthouse we found a Mother Shipton moth-the first I've seen in the area.
