Yesterday mum and I explored Port an Eas, along the way seeing raven, hooded crow, whinchat family, stonechat, whitethroat, linnet, meadow pipit and skylark. We also saw lots of butterflies, a few damselflies, and two Common Hawker dragonflies. Having made it down to the sea, we sat on the lichen and seaweed covered rocks by the sea to enjoy a snack, and see what was visible underwater, without a fishing net. We were very excited when we spotted first one, then two, then an abundance of Stalked Jellyfish of different sizes sucking onto the green seaweed. The last time we saw this species was about four years ago. We also enjoyed watching a friendly Shore Crab, and many Sea Hares. Most of the latter were no longer than a fingernail, but Mum found this large individual! We also saw three or four Gannets fly past.
