A lone Rusty-dot Pearl was the night's only immigrant moth at the Obs, but an Early Tooth-stripe was a good local record at Reap Lane and by day a Clouded Yellow was at Bottomcombe; a small south-bound passage of Painted Ladies was evident along and off Chesil during the evening.
We didn't ever round yesterday to extracting a still from our video footage of the Eastern Subalpine Warbler that showed the tail pattern, but Ted Pressey kindly passed us a photo from this morning that shows the large extent of white in the tail corners © Ted Pressey:

The north-bound passage of Arctic-breeding waders is now well underway and there was some nice variety today; the always compelling spectacle of the annual up-Channel passage of Bar-tailed Godwits - last stop Mauritania, next stop Holland - was sadly way too distant off the Bill for it to be captured by anything other than the imagination so we'll have to content ourselves with Sanderlings and Dunlins, and Turnstones and Bar-tailed Godwits at Ferrybridge © Martin Cade:

In as much as there was clearly some Painted Lady passage taking place it might be that today's Clouded Yellow was a new arrival rather than a potentially local-bred specimen © Ken Dolbear:
