Thursday 9th September

The Spotted Redshank remained in the estuary seen on both tides along with a single Ruff and 292 Redshank. Also in the estuary 50 Teal, 47 Great Black-backed Gull, 41 Bar-tailed Godwit, 29 Knot, 11 Greenshank, seven Turnstone and a Common Sandpiper.

Elsewhere at least 200 Common, a juvenile Little and 98 Sandwich Tern were offshore with a single Balearic Shearwater, the second winter Little Gull, four Mediterranean Gull and a Great Northern Diver.

Wildlife News: At least 20 Silver Y and a Rush Veneer were seen during the day. Moth-trapping was curtailed before midnight due to persistent drizzle with just 34 species recorded. This however included no less than three new species for the Recording Area; Pale Eggar, Centre-barred Sallow and Dusky Thorn. Also recorded a battered Old Lady, a late Jersey Tiger, Archer's Dart, eight Silver Y and, also new for the Warren, the Shore Sexton Beetle Necrodes littoralis.
