Very quiet around the peninsular today. At the north end of the Long Pits, 5+ Common Whitethroats, a Blackcap, 2+ Reed Warblers and 3 Swallows over. At the ARC the usual host of Coot and Mute Swans on the lake, over the Tower Pits 13+ Hobby's, a Marsh Harrier, a kestrel and a Common Buzzard, also a Spotted Flycatcher near The Pines.
 At Dengemarsh another 8+ Hobby's, 2 Marsh Harriers, 2 Little Egrets but little else of note. The Plodland moth trap had only 8 moths of 6 species.
When I got home after visiting the ARC I noticed this little beastie on my arm.
