As on most days recently there were large schools of fish offshore and these were attracting plenty of attention from the Gannets, gulls and terns and also brought in a Balearic Shearwater, a minimum of six Arctic Skuas and two Black Terns. A first-winter Mediterranean Gull and an adult Yellow-legged Gull were also on the beach along with a party of three Common Sandpipers.
Four Porpoises and a Grey Seal were also feeding offshore.
The moth traps were fairly quiet but the catch did include a Small Mottled Willow.
A Western Conifer Seed Bug was also found on the side of the Patch hide.
