The number of moths...

The number of moths coming to the moth light is still very low compared to the end of April even though the night time temperatures are higher, the bright moon must be affecting catches. No migrants and only 2 common quaker, a shuttle-shaped dart and a flame shoulder in the trap this morning.

Still very little visible migration at sea with only a small number of sandwich tern feeding close inshore.
