22nd Aug

Very few birds in the bushes with just 25 Willow Warblers and a Garden Warbler of note but there was a bit of overhead passage with a Green Sandpiper, a Redshank, 105 Yellow Wagtails, a Grey Wagtail and three Tree Pipits.
The sea was very quiet.

14 Porpoises were feeding offshore.

Moth trapping was much better than of late but rarer species were still just that with just a Pinion-streaked Snout of interest. An exceptional total of 16 Hummingbird Hawk-moths were also seen.
Butterflies included three Brown Argus.
