9th May

Very quiet on both land and sea. Just two Yellow Wagtails flew over and a 2.5hrs seawatch this morning produced just a Grey Plover, a Sanderling and seven Bar-tailed Godwits of any interest.


Butterflies were quite good today with the first three Brown Argus being seen along with three Holly Blues and six Grizzled Skippers
