Two Manx Shearwaters flew east this morning but not a great deal else was seen other than good numbers of Gannets and four Mediterranean Gulls.
Three Porpoises were feeding offshore.
The moth traps took a fair bit of sorting through this morning with 140 species (74 "macro"'s) and notable records including an Oak Nycteoline, a Scarce Bordered Straw, Langmaid's Yellow Underwing and four Dark Swordgrass along with the pyralids Oncocera semirubella, three Ostrinia nubilalis, two Eudonia lineola and an Acrobasis suavella.
