8th June

A flock of nine Manx Shearwater flew west this morning and single Mediterranean and Yellow-legged Gulls were seen at the Patch. It was very quiet on the land with 375 Swifts passing through being about the only sign of any migration.

Three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

Elsewhere, a Rose-coloured Starling made several appearances during the morning on the Rype in Lydd. Presumably the same bird as that seen nearby a couple of days ago.
