23rd June

Very little to report. A Marsh Harrier was hunting over the Desert.

Three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and two Brown Hares were seen in the Desert.  

Butterflies seen today included 40 Painted Ladys but the moth traps were very quiet with just 51 moths caught in two traps and nothing of note.
