Bugs!















Lots of invertebrates around today. Peacock, Small Heath, Meadow Brown, Small Copper, Small White, Small Tortoiseshell and Small Skippers all common. The Scorpion Fly was on the car roof. Lots of Grasshoppers in the dunes.

Birding was quite slow today. Most reed dwelling birds seem to have left; confirmed by IF's morning ringing session. No doubt a wave of Northern birds will pass through over the next few weeks before the redbed finally goes silent.

East Chevington held 5 Ruff, 2 Black TG and a Green Sandpiper. Sparrowhawk and 2 Kestrels but no sign of the Marsh Harriers IF saw this morning. Probably using the redbed as a roost site.
