After bringing the trap in I again set out for some early morning birding. A calm sea awaited and an obvious passage of Meadow Pipits over it. Five Red-breasted Mergansers flew north in 1 hour and seven Pink-footed Geese. The Waxwings were still at Ashington as I headed home.
This afternoon's highlights included Pintail at East Chevington (2) and Druridge (3); four Twite at the north end of Bell's Dunes were an overdue year tick and sadly one of the Ashington Waxwings was taken into care after presumably being hit by a car. It didn't survive unfortunately.
The full moth catch was :
