9th Sep

Fairly quiet on the land with just 20 Chiffchaffs, ten Willow Warblers, three Spotted Flycatchers and a Whinchat of note.

Lots of birds were feeding offshore again with eight Mediterranean Gulls, 1400 Sandwich Terns, four Little Terns, two Black Terns and at least nine Arctic Skuas along with lots of Gannets and Herring Gulls.

At least ten Porpoise and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.

A long awaited addition to the area dragonfly list was Willow Emerald with one found in the moat this afternoon.
