19th July

Very quiet in very hot weather. Five Mediterranean and three juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls were feeding offshore this afternoon.
Seven Yellow Wagtails flew over and a single Willow Warbler was seen at the Long Pits.

Eight Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore this afternoon.  

There were lots of moths in the trap this morning but there was nothing particularly unusual to be found. A Hummingbird Hawk-moth was seen on the security wall near the seawatch hide.
