Ongoing Excavation Works.

8th Aug

A cooler, fresher day with a stiff breeze limited observations on the land while there was little sign of any real improvement offshore. The land had very little to offer and a Mediterranean Gull was feeding at the Patch. Large numbers of Gannets and Sandwich Terns were also lingering offshore.

Four Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and five Bank Voles were found under strategically placed corrugated iron sheets.

The overnight catch of moths was very low in numbers but did include a Dusky Hook-tip - our fifth record of another very scarce migrant.  

Further searches for Wasp Spiders has increased the total to nine individuals.
