19th June

Very quiet. The only birds of note were 28 Mediterranean Gulls passing west this evening.

Eight Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.

The moth traps were fairly quiet but a visit to the Trapping Area with pheromone lures produced two Red-tipped Clearwings. Large numbers of Small Skippers and Meadow Browns are now on the wing.
