Three Mediterranean Gulls were seen offshore and a Common Tern was feeding at the Patch.
In the flat calm conditions this evening at least 11 Porpoises were feeding close inshore. A Brown Hare was seen in the Desert.
The number of moths coming to the trap remain very low but did include a Dark Sword-grass whilst butterflies included a couple of scarcer species for us in the form of a Brimstone and an Orange-tip. After further checking it appears that our last record of Orange-tip was in 1999!
