Not a great deal in rapidly improving weather conditions. A 2.5hr seawatch this morning produced 427 Gannets, ten Fulmars and a Manx Shearwater and later in the morning three Curlews flew west and a Mediterranean Gull was feeding offshore.
Two Porpoises were seen offshore.
A Holly Blue was seen in the trapping area along with several Painted Ladies and a Hummingbird Hawk-moth was flying around the garden for a short time. A Green Shieldbug Palomena prasina was found on the Sycamore in the trapping area.
