A Little Stint was a brief visitor to the Broadwater this morning and other birds present included a Green Sandpiper and  Dunlin. At least four Whimbrel were noted flying over and the Garganey was again present, though at times typically elusive.  The moth traps were very productive producing 80 species, which included a Cresent, Large, Small and Silky Wainscots, Coronet, Oak Hook-tip, Marbled Beauty and Gold Spot.
