26th June

Very quiet with just five Mediterranean Gulls of interest.

Two Porpoises and two Grey Seals were seen offshore.

Moth trapping produced a Rest Harrow and a Freyer's Pug while another pheromone luring session for clearwings produced another Red-tipped Clearwing, a Lunar Hornet Moth and five Six-belted Clearwings.
