31st May

Fifteen Mediterranean Gulls flew east with another two feeding at the Patch along with the first-summer Iceland Gull. A Tree Pipit was seen at the fishing boats but very little else was to be seen on the land. A party of 18 Canada Geese flew out to sea.

Two Grey Seals were feeding offshore and two Brown Hares were seen on the land.

The highlight of the day was probably a male Red-veined Darter which spent a few minutes at the Long Pits before being chased off by a Four-spotted Chaser. A Grizzled Skipper and a Brown Argus were of note among the butterflies seen.
