16th June

Two Mediterranean Gulls were feeding offshore and a Buzzard, a Great Spotted Woodpecker and 40 Swifts flew over on an otherwise quiet day.

Two Porpoises were feeding offshore.

A good variety of moths were trapped overnight although migrants were few and far between. The highlights included the micro Eidophasia messingiella and a Beautiful Hook-tip.
