9th May

A pretty quiet day on both the land and sea. Over five hours of seawatching produced seven Manx Shearwaters, five Great Skuas and 12 Arctic Skuas whilst five Willow Warblers was about the best the land had to offer.

Four Porpoises were feeding offshore.

The first Small Heath butterfly of the year was seen along with 70 Small Coppers.
