|Magpie Moth Caterpillar|
Bird wise it was quiet again but the wind didn't help much. A flock of around 100 great black backed- and herring gulls were roosting on the beach around the sewage pipe and feeding on the mass of decaying seaweed, being a mix of adults and various aged juveniles. A shelduck was on the beach amongst them. A few gannets were seen offshore. Land birds were represented by the usual whitethroats singing and song-flighting and a male blackcap was seen skulking in a bush.
Best find of the day was a scarlet tiger moth that I found at the bus stop, in the same place I found one last year.Unfortunately I found it just as the bus turned up so I took a few quick photos before I had to head home.
