26th July

The very hot weather continues. Migrants were pretty sparse on the land with just a Garden Warbler of note and overhead passage involved a Buzzard, a Redshank, 12 Sand Martins and four Yellow Wagtails. 
In the evening there was a large gathering of gulls and terns feeding offshore and with at least 320 Mediterranean Gulls in their midst.

The best of the overnight moth-trapping was a Scarce Chocolate-tip (only the sixth Observatory record) and two Small Red-eyed Damselflies were seen at the southern end of the Long Pits.
