2nd July 2018

Weather:  N 1-2, 0/8 cloud, hot!
A Chiffchaff on the island was a pleasant surprise, otherwise a hot day brought many Lepidoptera on the wing. Large Whites predominated with 14, also 6 Small Whites and 5 Green-veined Whites. Two Red Admirals, a Small Tortoiseshell and 6 Silver Y moths were also recorded. Good numbers of Herring Gulls (395) and Black-headed Gulls (52) were logged with 97 Sandwich and 13 Common Terns. A count of the Grey Seals recorded 463  in the haul out.

Ringed: 1 Chiffchaff                [ 412-29 ]
