Ongoing Excavation Works.

31st May

After the various excitements of the last few days there was not a great deal to report today. A small passage offshore included 177 Common Scoters, 13 Sanderlings and six Mediterranean Gulls but there were no obvious migrants on the land. There was no sign of the Rose-coloured Starling.

Ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore. 

Elsewhere, there was also no sign of the Great Reed Warbler at ARC.
