Saturday 7th October

The only bird news received was of three Chiffchaff with the Long-tailed Tit flock and eight Jackdaw on the mudflats. 

Other Wildlife: The warmth of the day lingered into the late afternoon meaning good numbers of Ivy Bee were active along with several Migrant Hawker and half a dozen Small White.

Elsewhere a Rusty-dot Pearl and the false blister beetle Oedemera femoralis were attracted to security lights, with other records including 24-spot Ladybird, the grass bug Notostira elongata and, new for the Recording Area, the garden escape Argentinian Vervain Verbena bonariensis.
