Two Great White Egrets flew west and two Arctic Skuas flew east this morning and the first-summer Iceland Gull and at least eight Mediterranean Gulls were seen at the Patch but very quiet on the land with just a Grey Wagtail overhead of interest.
At least 14 Porpoises, a Grey Seal and a Brown Hare were seen during the day and a Red-eared Terrapin was seen at the Long Pits..
A Clouded Yellow and three Brown Argus were seen but the moth trap was very disappointing.
Elsewhere, a Black Kite flew over the RSPB Reserve before gaining height and heading inland via Lydd.
