3rd May

After the seawatching riches of yesterday today was the complete opposite with just a Great Northern Diver, two Manx Shearwaters and a Great Skua seen in the first hour of daylight and then hardly a bird to be seen.
There was a small arrival of birds on the land with the highlight being a singing Wood Warbler at the Long Pits in the morning along with two Garden Warblers in the moat and a Whinchat in the Desert. 

Five Porpoises were feeding offshore. There was also quite a lot of Common Shrew activity in the trapping area.

One Grizzled Skipper was seen.

A Red-eared Terrapin was seen in the reed bed at the Long Pits.
