There was a single first-summer Mediterranean Gull at the Patch this evening and a Shag flew east during the morning.
Seven Porpoises were feeding offshore in the flat calm sea.
Three Grizzled Skippers were seen during the day and a decent catch of moths included only our second record of Caloptilia alchimiella.

This is only the second observatory record of this oak-feeding moth..
|Yellow-wort Blackstonia perfiolata Dungeness 25th May 2020|
A recent addition to the flora of the recording area but now in large amounts near Lloyds Cottage
and inside the perimeter fence of the power station.
