25th May

Very little to report on the bird-front today.

Mammals seen during the day included six Porpoises and a Grey Seal, a Stoat and a Brown Hare.

Butterflies included three Brown Argus and the first Black-tailed Skimmers of the year were also seen at the Long Pits.

A breeding bird survey inside the power station complex also produced two more colonies of Brassica Bugs and later in the day a small colony Lesser-streaked Shieldbugs Odontoscelis lineola and a Fallen's Shieldbug Arenocris falleni were found along the track to the Hanson Hide.
