Avocet (Mark Pearson)

Avocet (Mark Pearson)

A clear and sunny day with an initially light but strengthening south-easterly saw an Avocet at the Dams (HJW et al.) for the duration; otherwise, 15 Painted Ladies were in the Carr Naze / Country Park area, single Knot, Whimbrel and Redshank were on the Brigg and two Manxies headed south this afternoon. Thousands of diamond-back moths are present in the northern coastal area, with many on Carr Naze suggesting a continuing arrival.
