Migrants in the Lime Kiln trap this morning included 63 Rush Veneer, seven Rusty Dot Pearl, five White-point, five Dark Sword-grass (below), three Pearly Underwing, three Silver Y, two Evergestis extimalis and a single Small Mottled Willow. The highlight today however was a Rosy Wave (bottom), a species of wet habitats which is recorded less than annually in small numbers at Rye Harbour
