Sand Point VC6

List still growing slowly but surely. I got my first Wheatear at last. Highlight so far has been a Scathophagid netted on seaweed that has just been confirmed by Stuart Ball as Scathophaga calida a first for mainland England with the only other records from Isles of Scilly, Glamorgan and Scotland. Another more common lifer came in the form of Nedyus quadrimaculatus with a mating pair on Nettle.
