7th July

A Manx Shearwater flew west this morning and two Mediterranean Gulls were feeding at the Patch but very little else was seen.

Two Porpoises were seen offshore.

The first Gatekeeper of the year was seen and Marbled Whites are beginning to increase in number and the first Sussex Emerald of the summer was trapped overnight.

At least 111 Pyramidal Orchids were in flower in front of the Bird Observatory.
