Box-tree Moth a first for me and apparently only the second Dungeness record.
Passerines have been very difficult to find just lately around the peninsular, with the constant N.E wind making things even more difficult. Bearded Tits have been seen occasionally but very briefly from the viewing ramp, even Reed and Sedge Warblers have been elusive. On the brighter side islands are rapidly appearing on the ARC and on Burrowes attracting the first returning Common Sandpipers, Dunlin, Ruff, Greenshank and a Knot. This morning the first juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was seen at The Patch per DW, on the reserve the Little Gull is still present also a Mediterranean Gull there. I'm off to Mongolia tomorrow, hopefully when I return towards the end of the month things will be really moving.
Plutella Xylostella have been coming to the Plodland MV in good numbers
