23rd August

Despite the considerable change in the weather it was still a very quiet on the land with just a couple of Garden Warblers, five Lesser Whitethroats and a Sedge Warbler in the bushes whilst a Buzzard, 30 Yellow Wagtails, two Tree Pipits and a Crossbill flew over. 
Very quiet offshore.

Four Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.

Good numbers of butterflies were seen including 18 Brown Argus, a Holly Blue and a Smal Copper of the variety radiata. Moth trapping overnight showed a slight improvement in numbers with Orange Swift and Cypress Pug being the best on offer.

An evening visit to the Desert produced six Sickle-bearing Bush Crickets and lots of Tree Crickets in the usual locations.

A Red-eared Terrapin was seen again in the Southern Long Pit.
