8th May

A calm, warm day produced a few raptors including a Red Kite, a Marsh Harrier, 13 Buzzards and a Merlin but very little yet again in the way of grounded migrants. Seawatching was very slow in terms of numbers but a Greenshank was heard and a party of five Pomarine Skuas was seen in the morning.

Eight Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.

The first Brown Argus butterfly of the year was seen.
