Yesterday morning 10 moths in the trap with Swallow Prominent and White Ermine both new for the year. Both records were the earliest I've had for those species. We've reached the end of another month. April was generally cold so not as good as March but with 37 species recorded so far, this is much better than last year when only 17 species were recorded by the end of April. Had a walk round Victory Wood, Dargate, this morning. A Lesser Whitethroat and Nightingale only birds of note-not seen a House Martin yet.
