10th July

A quiet day on the Point with the only notable records coming from the sea. Two Yellow-legged Gulls and 12 Mediterranean Gulls heading east this afternoon were the best of a quiet sea watch.

At least three Porpoise and a single Grey Seal were also reported from the Fishing Boats.

The moth trap produced a further four fresh looking Sussex Emeralds this morning in what seems to be a good year for them. Also of note was our ninth record of Nut-tree Tussock
