Cold nights have meant little in the trap this month. Snow Buntings have returned to Reculver and other places for the winter.

We've reached the end of another month in which 13 new species for the year appeared in the moth trap. So 375 species have been trapped this year. Between 50 and 100 Fieldfares were by the Sportsman Inn at Seasalter late on Monday afternoon, and at Dungeness today a Merlin showed well chasing a Goldfinch at the Fishing Boats. In the afternoon a Little Owl was at Scotney Farm along with 30 Egyptian Geese. A feral Barnacle Goose was beside the track.
