A superb day of weather on the Suffolk coast. My highlights were Dotted Chestnut and Lead-coloured Drab in the moth traps and a juvenile White-tailed Eagle over the village.

A presumed immigrant Blossom Underwing (Orthosia miniosa) was the highlight from my trapping on the Bawdsey Peninsula last night.

Red Kite and Greenfinch were the two additions to my lockdown list from the house today in Hollesley. Now on 35 species. Still can't get a Pheasant, Song Thrush, Coal Tit or Jay.

Last year was an amazing one for butterflies and moths on Fair Isle (like this Bedstraw Hawk-moth photographed in July at Lower Stoneybrek by ). The Fair Isle Lepidoptera list has been updated by Nick Riddiford and is now on the FIBO website:

After a heads-up of a Red Kite over Boyton, I managed to intercept it from my observatory in Hollesley at 11:55am. Last seen heading inland. No sign of my Black Redstart today nor yesterday.
