4th June

The main event of the day was an afternoon/evening movement of at least 1400 Swifts passing through. Six Mediterranean Gulls were seen offshore.

Two Porpoises were feeding offshore.

A fairly cold day limited insect observations but singles of Holly Blue and Painted Lady were along with this freshly emerged Speckled Wood.
