« Mediterranean Gulls | Main | Last Year's Moths »

From the Clifftop

A definite spring feel to yesterday, with lots of birds resulting in a 3.5 hour seawatch. There was an obvious arrival of adult Mediterranean Gulls, mostly in pairs,- I counted 37 of these beautiful birds flying east at Clifftop height. Also of note was my first Sandwich Tern [but see below] fishing with up to 25 Kittiwakes, a Great Skua, 117 Red throated Divers fishing/moving E and 20 Guillemots. A smattering of wildfowl too-14 Scoters, 3 Pintail and 9 Brent.

As it was a relatively warm day I tried the moth trap and was rewarded with five moths this morning-including a Pale Brindled Beauty; new for the house list and only the second one I've ever caught !
