5th July

A few Swifts and two Yellow Wagtails passed overhead this morning and a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker was caught in the moat.
Very quiet offshore with just two Mediterranean Gull this evening of note.

Two Porpoises were feeding offshore.

There are some very high numbers of butterflies around the Point at the moment with the populations of Marbled Whites and Small Skippers being particularly noticeable.
