From the Clifftop

Highlight since my last entry was the second record for the house of the rare migrant moth Dark Crimson Underwing- one I caught just over two years ago was my first "good one " here; there were just three county records in 2017. [There are six species of Red Underwings in the latest macro. guide, here you can see the distinctive dogs-tooth markings of DCU in the dark band, the underwing markings were very clear, but hard to photograph]  Otherwise, plenty of moths, especially up to 74 Large Yellow Underwings,  new for the year species included The Sallow.

Bird migration has been light, with just odd Yellow and Grey Wagtails, a Wheatear and a Tree Pipit. This morning there was a good fishing movement of Sandwich Terns, with over 200 heading W between 0800 and o830. There was just one Common Tern with them, but also a nice pale-phase Arctic Skua.
