Again good moth numbers in the trap this morning with my first Poplar Hawk-moth this year and also first Least Carpet, Dot Moth, Slender Pug, and Smoky Wainscot. Also 2 (possibly 3) new micros for the garden list: Marbled Orchard Tortrix (Hedya nubiferana) and Plum Fruit Moth (Grapholita funebrana). This afternoon I visited Oare Marshes looking for waders but instead managed to find the Bonaparte's Gull which is back for its 4th year.
