Thursday 15th June

With no high tide visit, records were limited to the regular breeding species including two Song Thrush collecting food for second broods.

Wildlife News: The first Gatekeeper of the year was more or less on time, one of eight butterfly species recorded. Also on the wing the first Pantaloon Bee of the year, with plenty of Green-eyed Flower Bee and Silvery Leafcutter buzzing around bramble flowers. Toward Langstone Rock, Green Furrow Bee and Shiny-vented Sharptail were searching out crevices in the railway wall.

Also there a grasshopper hunting wasp, Tachysphex pompiliformis, a first for the Recording Area.
