2nd Aug

Surprisingly quiet on the land with just a handful of Willow Warblers in and around the Moat and a steady movement of Sand Martins moving south.

The sea was covered for most of the morning and produced a single Manx Shearwater along with 850 Gannets and a steady flow of Sandwich and Common Terns.

Ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
