A hot and sunny day with not a great deal to be seen. Six Mediterranean Gulls were in the roost at the Patch this morning.
Four Porpoise and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
The moth trap was very quiet but daytime sightings included at least 50 Rest Harrow moths in a colony near the Pumphouse and a Hummingbird Hawk-moth. In addition, about 20 Six-belted Clearwings came to a pheromone lure. A Clouded Yellow was also seen at the Long Pits along with large numbers of Small Skippers.
