Dunlin - between Mudbank and West Lodge - quite long-billed with rufous crown and quite bright orangey scaps - possible alpina or just schinzii?
A couple hours spent on East Budleigh and Bicton Commons this morning - good to search for insects with Nick. We found a few more Silver-studded Blues and Small Pearl-bordered Fritillaries and saw Green Hairstreaks, Red Admirals, Speckled Woods and Small Heaths. Moths included July Belle, Grass Wave and Common Heath. Quiet bird-wise but both Dartford warbler and Whitethroat in song up there, with Redpolls and Siskins over.
The contents of the moth trap included 1 Brimstone, 2 Bright-line Brown-eye, 1 Rusty-dot Pearl, 1 Small Fan-foot, 1 Dusky Brocade, 3+ Vine's Rustic, 1 Barred Yellow, 8 Minor Agg, 1+ Common Pug, 1 Green Pug, 1 Bramble-shoot Moth, 1 Brussels Lace, 7 Small Magpie, 35 Heart and Dart, 1 Elder Pearl, 3 Riband Wave, 7 Dark Arches, 4 Buff Ermine, 13 Flame, 2 Small Dusty Wave, 1 Double-striped Pug, 4 Snout, 1 Heart and Club, 2 Common Marbled Carpet, 1 Buff Arches, 1 Smoky Wainscot, 1 Setaceous Hebrew Character, 1 Bee Moth, 1 Middle-barred Minor, 2 Willow Beauty, 2 Clouded Border, 2 Light Arches, 4 Mottled Rustic, 2 Flame Shoulder, 1 Marsh Grey, 1 Peppered Moth, 2 Bordered Straw, 1 Straw Dot, 1 Meadow Grey, 1 Diamond-back Moth and 1 Yellow-spot Tortrix.
