Gulls and moths
The moth trap was once again rather busy with 240 moths of 83 species present. Year ticks included Pale Mottled Willow (Stråtagsugle, Caradrina clavipalpis), Ruby Tiger (Kanelbjørn, Phragmatobia fuliginosa), Common Footman (Blygrå Lavspinder, Eilema lurideola), Least Yellow Underwing (Mørksømmet Smutugle, Noctua interjecta), Endotricha flammealis, and Cacoecimorpha pronubana.
Purple-bordered Gold (Mose-Løvmåler, Idaea muricata)
The morning seawatch resembled yesterdays in several ways with a strong passage of both gulls and terns. Highlights included an adult Great Skua (Storkjove, Stercorarius skua) flying north along the shoreline and two Mediterranean Gulls (Sorthovedet Måge, Ichthyaetus melanocephalus) also migrating north (one each of 1cy and 2cy).

An afternoon bike ride to Oksby Klitplantage was fairly productive as well as seeing White-tailed Eagle (Havørn, Haliaeetus albicilla), two Cranes (Trane, Grus grus) and numerous Grey Herons (Fiskehejre, Ardea cinerea) the focus was once again on the invertebrates and flowers.
Marsh Gentian (Klokke-Ensian, Gentiana pneumonanthe)
Foresters (Grøn Køllesværmer, Adscita statices)
