28th June

It was another very quiet day, with just two Great Spotted Woodpeckers to speak of on land and 134 Gannets passing west in one hour this morning.

The first Ruddy Darter of the year was on the wing at the Long Pits.

At least six Harbour Porpoises were offshore along with two Grey Seals and an unidentified breaching shark.

Away from the observatory, the Spoonbill was present at Scotney GPs for a second day.
