One Porpoise was seen offshore.
Dragonflies provided most of the days interest with a Willow Emerald found in the Moat along with a Small Red-eyed Damselfly and another three of the latter at the Long Pits. Butterflies were also seen in good numbers with 21 Essex Skippers and nine Brown Argus of note.

Only the second Dungeness record of this species which is
rapidly expanding its range across southern England
|Small Red-eyed Damselfly Erythromma viridulum Dungeness 13th July 2020|
Although now regularly seen during the summer at the Long Pits
individuals (genuine migrants?) away from there remain very rare.
