20th Aug

A fair bit  around the bushes this morning although most of it was outside the trapping area with counts of 40 Willow Warbler, 26 Lesser Whitethroats, 70 Whitethroats and a Redstart of note. There was also a bit of overhead passage with nine Tree Pipits and a Grey Wagtail this morning and a couple of Buzzards later in the day.

Seawatching was fairly unproductive today with over four hours of watching producing just two Arctic Skuas, a Great Skua and the steady westerly stream of Sandwich Terns

Eight Porpoises and two Grey Seals were seen this morning.

A Clouded Yellow and 11 Brown Argus were also of note. A fairly late Langmaid's Yellow Underwing was trapped overnight and six Hummingbird Hawkmoths were seen during the day.
