Weather: SSE force 2/3
A Red Fox was out on the rocks to the eastern side of the island early this morning, it has been known for some time that a Fox has been present. A Southern Hawker dragonfly flew around the obs garden for a time. Over 40 Swifts went through today continuing the good counts of these birds lately. The west hoyle bank held an estimated 4,000 Herring Gulls, 180 Sandwich Terns, while Black-headed Gulls numbered about 350 with many juveniles, and 6 Redshanks were about the island. A Mediterranean Gull was again seen on the flood tide.
