The very quiet spell continues on the bird front, as few noteworthy species were found on the island today. Two Mediterranean Gulls flew past the Narrows in the morning, whilst two Whimbrels, two Common Sandpipers, eight Turnstones, three Ringed Plovers and two Redshanks were present around the Narrows.

 This rather smart Herald was trapped at Nant...
...along with the very cool-named Zeiraphera ratzeburgiana (third record for the island). Named after J.T.C Ratzeburg, a German entomologist
