The highlight of the day (for one observer at least) was a flock of five Bee-eaters which flew south over the trapping area at 0800hrs. Inside the Power Station there were two broods of fledged young Black Redstarts and one of Wheatears whilst two Buzzards flew over and a party of six Ravens was present. Two Black Terns flew east with a group of Common Terns.
Eight Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
A Variable Damselfly at the Long Pits was another uncommon dragonfly sighting for the area.
