26th June

Five Mediterranean Gulls were seen offshore and a Buzzard flew over. Four Black Redstarts were seen around the Power Station. There has been a small flock of Stock Doves at the Point for some time and today this increased to 29 birds.

A Grey Seal and three Porpoises were seen offshore.

Two Hummingbird Hawk-moths were seen along the power station wall but the moth traps were very disappointing.
