There was also very little movement offshore with just a Great Skua in the morning of note. In the afternoon there were plenty of birds feeding offshore including 200 Kittiwakes and seven Mediterranean Gulls.
The moth-trap produced an interesting diving beetle - Dytiscus semisulcatus. This is quite a rare beetle on the marsh although it is described as common nationally but perhaps preferring more acidic habitats.
