15th June

Little change on the bird front although an evening seawatch produced another 110 Mediterranean Gulls moving east. At least 61 Stock Doves were seen around the Point.

Three Porpoises and three Grey Seals were feeding offshore.

The moth traps proved very productive again with the highlights of the first Observatory record of The Mocha and the first record since 2011 of a Rannoch Looper
