1st June

A foggy day with a handful of migrants on the land including two Reed Warblers and two Garden Warblers and also two Egyptian Geese which flew over the Long Pits. More unusual was a Bittern which flew from the ARC Pit into the Long Pits area. The sea was barely visible for most of the day but a Velvet Scoter flew west in a brief clearer spell. A Mediterranean Gull also flew over the area.

At least four Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
