Small Angle Shades

I ran the moth trap at Bystock last night. Great company with DWT members and a nice selection of moths (at least 52 macro species). The highlights were several marbled white spot, a few small purple-barred and a single small grass emerald - a rare heathland species. The catch also included large emerald, true lover's knot and a four-spotted footman. A big thank you to Derek for organising it.
A look off Maer Rocks late this afternoon produced 4 turnstone, 6+ dunlin, 6 knot and 22+ sanderling, along with c25+ common scoter, a few manx shearwater, 2 mediterranean gull, c40+ sandwich tern and 4 common tern.
