Four Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
A male Red-veined Dragonfly was sunning itself in the shelter of the power station wall this morning and a Hummingbird Hawk-moth was also seen there. Another large overnight catch of moths occurred and with highlights being a Small Fan-footed Wave (surprisingly scarce here), a Double Kidney, a Double Lobed (only the sixth Observatory record) and a Langmaid's Yellow Underwing.
Good numbers of butterflies were on the wing with 15 Brown Argus of note.
