6th Aug

More of the same with the hot weather continuing and just a trickle of migrants including a Garden Warbler and five Sedge Warblers passing through.
Five Mediterranean Gulls were also seen during the day.

Three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

A Lesser Emperor dragonfly made a couple of brief visits to the southern Long Pit during the morning but on both occasions it was quickly chased off by one of the local Emperors. A Small Red-eyed Damselfly was also seen.

The moth traps were very quiet overnight but two Hummingbird Hawk-moths were still feeding in the Observatory garden during the day.
