Three Stock Dove on Warren Point was unusual there, but nothing else of note with only two Shag and a Gannet illustrating just how poor it was offshore.
Wildlife news: black and yellow stripes were in vogue, with two new striking species for the site Chrysotoxum festivum Hook-banded Wasp Hoverfly and Nephrotoma flavipalpis, a tiger cranefly. Though chic black is never out of fashion, flattering the delta-winged poise shown by the Cheilosia variabilis Figwort Cheilosia, a hoverfly.
