24th July

A breezy and warm day with temperatures eventually reaching 26°.

Another quiet day in the area. A Common Sandpiper was present on the bottom Long Pit and several Yellow Wagtails flew overhead.

A sea watch in the afternoon produced a single Mediterranean Gull, a single Guillemot on the sea and 31 Sand Martins heading out across the Channel.

A single Grey Seal and four Porpoise were also seen from the fishing boats.
