At last a proper summers day.

 An adult Greater Spotted Woodpecker alighted on a telegraph pole in West Front Road this morning at 7.30am...not a bird often seen on the beach,  presumably part of  post breeding dispersal.

A splendid Small Elephant Hawk moth in the trap this morning...

Whilst fishing near the Mulberry a few Gannets flew east but little else apart from a few GBB Gulls
Incidentally 4 hours fishing produced 1 Ballan Wrasse and just 3 Mackerel....not an overwhelming catch, but pleasant bobbing about in the sun in peace and quiet. From tonights forecast I think this an unlikely possibility tomorrow!
