23rd May

Frequent torrential downpours made for difficult conditions but there was no sign of any migrants on the land. There were plenty of birds feeding at the Patch again including four Mediterranean Gulls and three Yellow-legged Gulls (all second-summers).

One Porpoise was seen.

There was no sign of yesterdays Gull-billed Tern.
