From the Clifftop

Despite some unfavouable nights of late, with some very cold early mornings, my Fairlight moth trap is pulling in three figure catches, notably lots of Lunar Underwings [pictured] .These come in a variety of colours, this is a fairly dark one; today's count of 70 is my highest ever, anywhere. Also today The Delicate and two Dark Sword-grass [migrants], and two year additions , Turnip and Flounced Chestnut, raise this year's garden list to 350.

With little bird migrant activity first thing, I looked at the sea for an hour, noting 55 Gannets and an Arctic Skua moving east, and the first Kittiwake for many weeks went west. 

At about 8.30 there was a flurry of  House Martins:400 went rapidly west.
