15th May

A quiet day on the land was given a brief lift following a call from the RSPB Reserve telling us of a Bee-eater heading our way. A few minutes we could hear it calling overhead but sadly failed to see it. Other bits and pieces in the area included a Hobby and a Spotted Flycatcher.
The sea was also fairly hard work with 3.25hr watch in the morning producing just a Black-throated Diver, three Manx Shearwaters and an Arctic Skua of note. The Iceland Gull and three first-summer Mediterranean Gulls were feeding  at the Patch.

One Porpoise was seen offshore. 

A Painted Lady was seen at the Long Pits.
