Mostly Moths


First-summer Herring Gull
Off Maer Rocks first thing this morning -  14 common tern, 1 little tern, 1 little egret, and a first-summer mediterranean gull. Off the Imperial there were 22+ sandwich tern and 170 curlew. I  ran the moth trap last night for the first time in ages. A battered bordered straw was the only immigrant but it was good to see a decent selection of common stuff.

Bee Orchids - we were in Exeter this afternoon so I took Lu and the kids to have a quick look at these at the Pynes Hill Tesco's - well worth a little detour.
