Two Spotted Flycatchers were seen in the bushes and a Grey Wagtail flew over.

The sea was very quiet.

Three Variable Damselflies were seen at the Long Pits.

A month or so ago a colony of Common Twayblade was discovered growing under Sallows at the Long Pits and was a new species for the area. These are now in flower but are deep in shade so a flash was needed to get any sort of decent picture.
