30th July

A nice and sunny day but very quiet on the migration front. The highlights from the sea were two Balearic Shearwaters this morning. Migrants on the land were mainly concentrated around the Long Pits with 60 Willow Warblers and a Sedge Warbler while 400 Sand Martins, a Grey Wagtail and five Yellow Wagtails passed overhead.

Ten Porpoise were feeding offshore. 

Another Lesser Emperor dragonfly was seen around the pumphouse area this morning and three Small Red-eyed Damselflies were also seen at the southern end of the Long Pits.
