Heavy overnight rain meant everything that was on site seemed to be sheltering from the weather. The most prominent species on show were 10 Whitethroat and 20 Goldfinch, both of which appear to have had a good breeding season locally so far. Things on the move were 54 Swifts, 27 Black-headed Gulls and 1 each of Lapwing and Curlew, all in off the sea.
Moth-wise, yet another Spurge Hawk moth to add to the growing list, also Pine Hawk, White Satin and this Coronet are all noteworthy for the site.

4 birds ringed: Chiffchaff 1, Goldfinch 1, Linnet 1, Starling 1
