23rd June

After a night and early morning of heavy rain and almost constant thunder and lightning there was very little to be seen in the way of birds.

Night scenes from the Observatory.

Three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and a Stoat was seen near the Observatory.

The moth trap was very disappointing with just a Freyer's Pug of note but large numbers of Silver Y's and a Hummingbird Hawk-moth arrived during the day.

The Cattle Egret was seen on the RSPB Reserve again.
