8th July 2017

Weather: NW force 1/2 Sunny and warm

A short pre-tide visit on a lovely morning failed to produce any unusual bird sightings.
The breeding birds however like this Meadow Pipit seem to be having a good season

Sandwich terns will soon form a post breeding roost east of the island.
Black-headed Gulls are now increasing, this apparently newly fledged bird was between the marine lake and Little Eye.
   Compass Jellyfish, chrysaora hysoscella, can give a moderate sting to the unwary

 An unusual sight this morning was a male butterfly flying around with a female attached in the (reverse) mating position, and once when it landed another briefly came to join the two.
