29th July

Another breezy day resulted in plenty of seawatching which produced 11 Balearic Shearwaters, five Manx Shearwaters, 1088 Gannets, three Arctic Skuas, 109 Sandwich Terns and 114 Common Terns.

Four Porpoises were seen.

The Banded Demoiselle was seen at the southern end of the Long Pits again.

This hymenopteran was also found in the area this morning.It appears to be Gasteruption jaculator but not sure of its status in Kent and any confirmation would be useful.



Elsewhere, the Pectoral Sandpiper was seen again on Burrowes and a colour-ringed Great White Egret was also seen.
