Marsh pugless

Heysham Obs
A thorough search by pug expert Brian Hancock failed to find any Marsh Pug this lunchtime.  Maybe they emerged early this year and have been finished off by the recent unsettled weather

The only bird observations were:
Common Whitethroat feeding young by the office
2CY Kittiwake - single on Heysham 2 outfall
Arctic Tern - single on the seaward end of Heysham one outfall

Moth trap
Middle-barred Minor, Eudonia mercurella and Hedya nubiferana were all, I think, new for the year
