24th Sept

With a freshening southerly wind there was more activity offshore but just how much was actually passing through was questionable. Several hours of watching produced 16 Arctic and eight Great Skuas and a Manx Shearwater and around 300 Sandwich Terns feeding. A first-winter Caspian Gull came into the fishing boats in the evening. Swallows were moving south in good numbers.

Three Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore and a weasel was seen on the land.

Moth trapping produced the first Delicate of the year and another Vestal.
