One Porpoise was seen offshore.
Butterflies included two Grizzled Skippers (one looking as if it had just emerged) and a tatty Brown Argus in the Observatory garden. Lots of Diamond-back Moths continue to be seen. The numbers of dragonflies remain low but the first Emperor Dragonfly of the year and 50 Red-eyed Damselflies were seen. A beetle was photographed at the Long Pits which turns out to be Donacia clavipes and classified as Notable B. (thanks to Mark Telfer for help with the identification.)
