A quiet but warm day on the shingle today with the interest largely being restricted to the sea again. Two Mediterranean Gulls headed east and a few Sandwich and Common Terns were feeding off the point.
Sand Martins were again on the move with 219 being recorded heading out towards from the point and a further c.100 feeding over the shingle opposite Prospect Cottage. Two Black Redstarts were present along the Power Station Fence.
Six Brown Hares including two leverets were present in the Desert. Three Porpoise and a Grey Seal were present off the Point.
A single Sussex Emerald was the best from two rather quiet moth traps.
