From the Clifftop

A lot warmer  and those strong winds have ceased, so it's more comfortable  on the clifftop now . Birdwise, we are in the summer doldrums, just the odd thing flying over early in the morning  while I check the moth trap. Best was a group of 5 Crossbills a few days ago, otherwise odd Siskins, Grey Wagtails and Yellow Wagtail. At least 400 Herring Gulls were milling about at sea this morning, with them 15 Gannets, 20 Sandwich Terns, 3 Med Gulls and a Kittiwake.

The moth trap was heaving this morning, with over 50 species-as always during warm weather quite a few intesting little 'uns escape when you take the top off. However Variegated Golden Tortrix, Broken-barred Carpet and Beautiful Hook-tip [pictured; I'm not sure that name is entirely merited !] stayed put  were all new for the house list.
