Fresh SW winds and drizzle/light rain for much of the morning but brightening up a bit in the afternoon. Most of the interest was offshore again with over six hours of watching producing a summer-plumage male Long-tailed Duck, a Balearic Shearwater, a juvenile Pomarine Skua, 24 Arctic Skuas, two Great Skuas, a Little Gull and four Mediterranean Gull along with large numbers of Sandwich Terns and good numbers of Gannets and Common Terns.
Large numbers of hirundines also passed through but very little was seen in the bushes.
Eight Porpoises were feeding offshore.
A male Southern Oak Bush Cricket was attracted to the moth light but the moths were very disappointing.
