Ongoing Excavation Works.

30th July

A calm, drier morning than yesterday and much quieter offshore with only singles of Balearic and Sooty Shearwaters, a Great Skua, six Mediterranean Gulls and nine Little Terns of note. In the afternoon there were at least 15 juvenile/first-winter Mediterranean Gulls and a juvenile/first-winter Yellow-legged Gull feeding  at the Patch.

Just one Willow Warbler was seen in the bushes and 13 Sand Martins and a Yellow Wagtail passed through.

Three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
