Coverage today was limited to the first few hours of daylight but it was clear that there only a thin scattering of migrants on the land but these did include our first Firecrest of the autumn along with a Redstart, 13 Wheatears and three Whinchats. An Eider and an Arctic Skua were seen offshore.
There was a good variety of moth in the traps overnight but nothing of any real note. Two Hummingbird Hawkmoths were seen.
