Moth trapping this April has been dire with just 4 species being added to the year list since the end of March. The most interesting were 2 sightings of Emperor Moth in the garden attracted by the use of a pheromone lure. Interesting birds seen in April were: Penduline Tit at Oare Marshes, Bittern at Stodmarsh, Hooded Crow and Night-heron at Dungeness, plus the first Wheatears and Whimbrels at Oare.
