25th June

Little to report from another fairly miserable day. Seven Mediterranean Gulls were seen at the Patch in the evening and at least three Black Redstarts were singing again around the power station.

Four Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

Moths continue to be in short supply in the traps but the first Sussex Emerald and Bordered Straw of the year were trapped.
