8th July

Most of the interest today was in Mediterranean Gulls with at least 74 passing east.

Several recently fledged broods of Black Redstart are a regular site around the perimeter of the power station.

Three Porpoise and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and a Thresher Shark was also seen breaching.

Three Sussex Emeralds were the best of a poor nights moth trapping. The tachinid fly Tachina grossa was seen at the Long Pits.
