Landbirds were few and far between but did include three Lesser Whitethroats, two Yellow Wagtails and a summer-plumaged Water Pipit on the beach this morning,
It was also very quiet overnight with just singles of Water Rail and Oystercatcher recorded.
Six Porpoises were feeding offshore.
Ten Red Admirals were seen and a 30 minute search of a small patch of ground in the moat produced six individuals of the rare Geotomus (petiti?) shieldbug.
