14th July

A damp, dreary day which failed to produce very much at all. Three Mediterranean Gulls were seen offshore and three Yellow Wagtails passed overhead.

There was a notable increase in Porpoise numbers with at least 11 individuals along with three Grey Seals feeding offshore.

The Black-winged Stilt continues its long stay at the ARC Pit.
