1st June

A calm and very hot and sunny day but with very little to be seen in the observatory area. The Iceland Gull was still at the Patch and seven Mediterranean Gulls were seen during the day.

A Stoat and two Red-eared Terrapins were seen.

Elsewhere, the superb highlight was a brilliant adult male Rose-coloured Starling which was seen on several occasions around the Hookers area of the RSPB Reserve and eventually went to roost there.
