Whilst movement offshore appeared to have virtually ceased there was still plenty of activity with at least six Arctic Skuas marauding up and down the beach, good numbers of Sandwich Terns still feeding, the Eider floating around and a brief appearance of a first-year Caspian Gull at the fishing boats.

Six Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare was also seen.
Two Clouded Yellows and two Hummingbird Hawkmoths were seen around the Observatory and a Pearly Underwing was the only moth of any note trapped overnight.
