Ongoing Excavation Works.

20th June

A miserable day of strong winds and heavy rain during the morning followed later by thick fog. A few intrepid seawatchers scraped up to two Balearic and five Manx Shearwaters and 14 Little Terns moving west but there was little else to be seen.

A Grey Seal was feeding offshore.

Of note elsewhere was a Cattle Egret with cattle in Hayfield 2 on the RSPB Reserve.
