1st August

There was a small arrival of Willow Warblers this morning and a Little Ringed Plover flew over otherwise there was very little to be seen on the land. There were eight first-winter Yellow-legged Gulls and three Mediterranean Gulls feeding offshore and two Manx Shearwaters flew east..

At least six Porpoises were feeding offshore. 

A Hummingbird Hawk-moth was feeding along the wall on the seaward side of the power station.
