Yesterday I received our moth trap back from a fellow AWT researcher and checking the trap this morning there were over 20 species despite the overnight rain. Below a Waved Umber Moth. I have to admit that I really enjoy the moths that posses such magnificent camouflage, if not against my egg box ! This species is considered rare on Alderney.
Little Egret numbers seem to be increasing around the island with at least 10 individuals between Braye and Longis beaches this afternoon. The Longis ones were accompanied by 2 Grey Herons and 2 Curlew. High tide roost for Oystercatchers in Longis has risen to 62 birds.
