31st July

There was a small arrival of Willow Warblers during the morning and a build up of Sand Martins at the Point in the afternoon.

Over five hours of seawatching produced three Balearic Shearwaters, 375 Gannets, ten Sanderlings, five Dunlins, three Whimbrels, three Arctic Skuas, six Black Terns, 250 Sandwich Terns and 330 Common Terns moving west. An adult Mediterranean Gull and two Yellow-legged Gulls were also seen

 At least eight Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.

A Scarce Bordered Straw was the best on offer from the overnight moth trapping.
