Not a great deal new to report this last three days other than a few decent moths along the southern fringe with Mullein Wave and Grass Emerald on 1/8 plus 4 x Bordered Beauty in the office trap.  Meds have been in variable numbers but the main feature has been a large early influx of unringed juvs with many of the Ads and other older age classes from early July having moved on

Med Gull - 27, including 19 Juv, 4 adult, 3 2CY and a 3CY
Little Egret - 2

2nd August
Late in the tide cycle and just 11 juv and one adult Med

3rd August (thanks Gav & Ian)
Whimbrel - 1
Med Gull - 15 juv, 3CY, Ad
