Persistent light rain for most of the day grounded a handful of migrants with 12 Blackcaps, two Garden Warblers and four Whinchats of note.  A Greenshank, two Tree Pipits and a Grey Wagtail flew over.
An afternoon seawatch produced three Knot, a Ruff, 16 Bar-tailed Godwits, 11 Arctic Skuas, five Little Gulls, two Little Terns and four Black Terns.

A Pearly Underwing and two Dark Sword-grass were trapped overnight.

A male Southern Oak Bush Cricket was found on the kitchen window this morning.
