9th June

A Willow Warbler was the only obvious new migrant in the trapping area whilst three Cuckoos were displaying at the Long Pits this evening. Six Mediterranean Gulls and the white-winged gull were feeding at the Patch during the morning.

Porpoise was seen offshore and two Stoats were seen along the Observatory access track.

Two Red-eared Terrapins were basking in the sunshine at the Long Pits.

The best of the butterflies were two Brown Argus along with good numbers of Common Blues and Small Heaths and four Painted Ladies.
