28th May

There was little sign of any migration on the land and the sea was very quiet but still provided the bird of the day in the form of a Puffin which flew east with three Guillemots. An adult Mediterranean Gull was feeding at the Patch. Two  broods of Black Redstart were seen and several young Stonechats were on the wing but there has been no sign of any young Wheatears as yet.

Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
