18th July

Quite a few birds feeding offshore this morning including several hundred Gannets, five Mediterranean Gulls, two juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls and 50 Sandwich Terns and an Arctic Skua flew west this afternoon. Sand Martins trickled through during the day.

Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

Two Hummingbird Hawkmoths were sunning themselves along the power station wall but the moth traps were very disappointing in the breezy conditions.
