15th July

A quiet day with just one Manx Shearwater and three Mediterranean Gulls of note offshore. A Grey Wagtail was seen at the sewage works unit in the power station and two Yellow Wagtails flew over.

Porpoise numbers are increasing rapidly with at least 21 individuals feeding offshore this morning and a Grey Seal was also seen.

Twelve Essex Skippers and two Brown Argus whilst the moth trap produced this superb Rose Plume and only the third Observatory record.
