Male and female Garganey were seen again today on the main scrape (D. Standish).
Earlier an Oystercatcher was on the wader scrape from 06.40 to 06.50hrs, and a little later a Little Egret (K. Bannister/N. Lunn/S. Grove). 3 Buzzards were 'thermalling' in the mid-day sun and a Cuckoo sang.
Butterflies included 1 Brown Argus, 15 Common Blue, 10 Small Heath, 9 Dingy Skipper, 14 Speckled Wood and 1 Large Skipper.
Also a phenomenal count of 48 Burnet Companion moths were counted on the wildflower managed Western Meadow (Chris Parkin).
