19th June

Another very hot day, fortunately an easterly breeze kept the temperature more bearable. A Swift was the only bird of mild interest from land. The sea fared better with 16 Common Scoter, four Oystercatchers, four Mediterranean Gulls, 28 Sandwich and three Common Terns.

Two Grey Seals and two Porpoises were feeding offshore.

Last night's moth trap was much quieter than the previous with 77 species recorded and of these only 30 species were Macro moth. No real surprises amongst the haul although migrants were represented with 2 Silver 'Y' and two Diamond-back Moth.
