21st May

Rain for most of the day. The highlight of the day was a singing but very hard to see Marsh Warbler in the garden of Southview Cottage. A bit of overhead passage occurred and included 38 Swifts, a Hobby, 120 Swallows and 41 House Martins.

Eight Porpoise and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore and two Brown Hares were seen in the Desert.
