Ongoing Excavation Works.

26th July

A handful of Yellow Wagtail and 56 Sand Martins passed through the fishing boats this afternoon on rather quiet sea watch with the highlight being four Kittiwakes.

At least three Grey Seals and ten Porpoise were also seen from the Boats.

The heavy rain last night didn't stop the moth traps from being full although there was few uncommon species with a Scarce Bordered Straw and Latticed Heath being the only notable species.
