11th July

A windy day made for difficult conditions but around 500 Swifts were feeding over the Point for much of the day. Seawatching produced a Manx Shearwater and an Arctic Skua of note whilst a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was seen at the Patch.

Five Porpoises feeding offshore.

Yesterday, the plant Yellow-wort Blackstonia perfoliata was added to the Observatory flower list but conditions have made obtaining a decent image virtually impossible. Hopefully it will be less windy tomorrow and taking pictures will be a bit easier.
