12th June

Most of the days interest was offshore where there was an easterly trickle of Sandwich and Common Terns and the highlight of the day in the form of a Roseate Tern which spent some time during the morning at the Patch before also moving off eastwards. Three Mediterranean Gulls were also feeding at the Patch. 

Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen.
