Lime Bent-wing, Storks

One of two Juvenile Black-tailed Godwits off Mudbank yesterday.

Off Mudbank today - 1 Redshank, 1 Dark-bellied Brent Goose, 3 Mediterranean Gulls, the Yellow-legged Gull and c200 Mallard. A large flock of 25+ White Storks (presumably the 'Knepp 28' seen earlier in Torquay) flew hurriedly across the river at 1650, watched from the back garden, and a Tree Pipit flew over Mudbank, calling, earlier on this morning.
Of note off there yesterday - 2 Black-tailed Godwits and a Grey Plover, along with the summering Dark-bellied Brent Goose.

First-summer Yellow-legged Gull.

Lime Bent-wing Bucculatrix thoracella. One of two trapped last night. The larvae apparently feed on Small-leaved Lime and sometimes Common Lime.

Endothenia species.

Silver Y. Just this and a single Diamond-back the only evidence of any immigrant activity, unless you include Turnip and Rusty Dot Pearls.

One of two Orange swifts trapped last night.

Small Rufous.
