2nd June

A fresh southerly breeze today resulted in an increase in the numbers of birds offshore with 11 Eiders, 368 Common Scoters, 30 Mediterranean Gulls and three Arctic Skuas passing through of note.
Very quiet on the land.

Four Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

The overnight moth traps produced a couple of minor surprises in the form of our fourth Grass Rivulet and seventh Small Yellow Wave
