20th April 2015

A predictably quiet day with high pressure, sunshine and a cool easterly breeze. A Whimbrel, five Sand Martins and a Wheatear were in the Carr Naze / Brigg area, while the first brood of Mallards were at East Lea (with eleven ducklings braving the open water).

Our team down at Hunmanby Gap aren’t just about the visible migration, and the moth traps there produced two highlights on 13th and 14th respectively – a White-marked (the first ever record for VC61) and a Red Sword-grass.
