3rd June

Another cold and cloudy day but at least the wind dropped. The Patch provided most of the days interest with the best being a couple of Roseate Terns seen late morning. Among the hordes of birds feeding there were at least 15 Mediterraneans Gulls, a second-summer Yellow-legged Gull, the mystery white-winged gull and a return visit of what is presumably a Mediterranean x Black-headed Gull hybrid. A Great Skua also passed through.

A Grey Seal was also feeding offshore.

The invasion of Diamond-backed Moths Plutella xylostella continues with around 1000 counted but this will only touch the surface of the real numbers present.
