Sunday 8 July 2018


Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing - a female and my first this year.
A few more birds off the seafront than of late. Early this morning - 8 Mediterranean Gulls, 23 Common Scoter, 12 Sandwich Tern and 2 Common Tern. A Grey Wagtail flew over and small numbers of Swift and Swallow appeared to be on the move, out over the sea. Mediterranean Gulls were the order of the day with a further 7+ off Mudbank, including my second juvenile this year, following one off the seafront yesterday. Below, in order, are juvenile, First-summer, second-summer and adult summer Meds. I didn't get a read on the white-ringed Black-head.

Golden-brown Tubic - Crassa unitella

Square-spot Rustic - this and the Dun-bar below were firsts for this year. Also got my first Jersey Tiger of 2018 today.


Red Twin-spot Carpet. Don't think it's Dark-barred.


New Tawny Tubic - Batia lunaris
This fungus was pale yellow yesterday and today it's over twice the size and flushed light orange. I searched 'yellow fungi' online but couldn't find a match.
