23rd June

A Grey Wagtail was the only bird of note.

Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

The days obvious highlights were actually elsewhere today. A Gull-billed Tern which was first seen at ARC yesterday evening eventually reappeared in the afternoon and gave excellent views. A Black-winged Stilt was also found at the western end of ARC Pit.
