14th July

Little to report on the birding front. A second-winter Mediterranean Gull and two juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls were feeding at the Patch and 115 Swifts and a Yellow Wagtail flew over.
The Peregrine Falcon family continue to show well around the power station.

Looking for dragonflies proved very productive today with the finding of a male Broad-bodied Chaser Libellula depressa near the New Lighthouse (third Observatory record) and a male Red-veined Darter Sympetrum fonscolombii at the SE corner of the trapping area. 

One Porpoise was seen offshore.
