From the Clifftop and East Guldeford Levels

Warmer nights continue to increase my Fairlight moth list, though heavy rain one night got into the trap electrics [this isn't supposed to happen], burning out the controller and tripping everything in the house !

Thanks to very prompt service by Watkins & Doncaster I only missed a night. New species for the year  included the showy Cream-spot Tiger, Coxcomb Prominent and both Small Phoenix and Phoenix; as usual at this time of year, nothing unusual. Quite a lot of Cockchafers.

A visit to EGL this morning added to my zero Turtle Dove  results,  but just the short circuit produced 9 male Yellow Wagtails, all in Field Beans, also 4 singing Corn Buntings and a male Stonechat hanging around some remote bramble bushes. This is first time I've recorded one here in the breeding season.
