The toilet block held a silver y, a snout and a small blood vein along with 2 yet-to-be-identified micro moths. Along the walk I again disturbed many silver y moths from the vegetation, there must have been quite an influx of them despite the weather - and I even had one in my moth trap this morning too.

A few meadow brown were on the wing along with single ringlet and a large white and I counted 8 common lizards on the wooden fence beams by the path with a single common lizard on the wall at the bus stop. I had a quick look for a scarlet tiger moth at the bus stop too but was out of luck.
Chiffchaffs and whitethroats were seen and heard and a male mallard in eclipse plumage looked very forlorn sat alone on the rocks. At Wembury Point a little egret was roosting at high tide with 30 oystercatcher, 2 whimbrel and 14 curlew, presumably failed breeders on a quite early date. 2 buzzards and 2 raven flew along the coast and 2 fledgling stonechats were seen along with 2 males and a female. 2 cirl buntings were heard singing with a further 2 male birds being seen. A green woodpecker was heard yaffling away with a brief flight view as it flew in to the pines at Wembury Point, a bird I haven't seen at Wembury for a while now. Offshore a few gannets were seen although they were quite a way out.
Two false oil beetles with chunky thighs were seen on some flowers and sheeps bit was in flower at Wembury Point.
