A BEAUTIFUL DAY
It was officially the first day of summer today, and as if proving a point we were treated to easily the most glorious day of the year so far. It was a beautiful day on the coast today as the sun shone brightly in the bright blue sky, making this mornings Ringing a very pleasant experience indeed. Bird-wise it was very quiet with the usual Goldcrests and arriving Chiffchaffs being the norm, but the highlight was undoubtedly this stunning female Sparrowhawk that was caught on the final net-check of the day.
There was a new Moth in the trap for me today, a March Moth (below). The rest were the usual species like Hebrew Character and Clouded Drab etc.
