Met up with a couple of local environmental campaigners today, Sav and Rav from Thornton Heath to discuss some campaigning ideas and then I had a quick look round the farmlands for any migrants. Despite the good conditions (light rain and overcast) we couldn't find any summer migrants.
Up to 8 Water Pipits on the enclosed beds
Flocks of Snipes were unusually flying around- groups totally 30-40. Appeared to be restless migrants.
Skylark singing on the mound- great to hear.
A couple of new moths in the trap last night- Common Plume and Twin-spot Quaker (below)
