3rd July

There was an excellent movement of Mediterranean Gulls today with at least 88 passing west. There was also a slow but steady westerly trickle of Sandwich and Common Terns and a Tufted Duck flew east.
Four Sand Martins passed through on the land.

Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

Moth trapping was much quieter than of late. Two Brown Argus and several Essex Skippers were seen during the day. Of greater note was a male Banded Demoiselle which was moving quickly south through the trapping area this afternoon.
