A very rough day making birding difficult. At least one Ring Ouzel was still present in the dunes on the NWT reserve, and a Wheatear was also present, with at least 3 Swallows passing through, and 2 Willow Warblers and 4 Blackcaps singing.

A further seven Emperor Moths hatched during the day, but only a single Clouded Drab and Hebrew Character were caught in the traps.
