14th July

Not a great deal to be seen today although coverage was somewhat limited by the televising of the final of the Cricket World Championships. A Garganey passed east offshore with two Common Scoters and four Mediterranean Gulls also flew east.

A Latticed Heath and the two micros, Calybites phasianipenella and Argyresthia goedartella were the highlights form the moth traps.

Three Porpoises were feeding offshore.

The Serin was still singing at Littlestone.
