15th June

Three Mediterranean Gulls were feeding offshore but very little else was seen.

Seven Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.

A Mottled Beauty was only the fourth Observatory record but migrants were limited to a handful of Plutella xylostella and a few daytime Silver Y's.

It is possible to see two county-level rare plants at the same time at the Long Pits at the moment with Greater Spearwort still in flower and the first Lesser Water-plaintain starting to appear.
