Another cloudless, very hot and calm day with just a trickle of migrants passing through including a Buzzard, three Whimbrels, three Redshanks, three Willow Warblers, a Garden Warbler and two Yellow Wagtails. In mid-morning there was a massive hatch of flying ants and gulls swarmed in to feed on them and included an excellent total of 70 Mediterranean Gull and 400 Swifts also joined the throng.
At least five Porpoises and singles of Grey and Common Seal were feeding offshore.
Moth trapping produced the scarce pyralid Euzophera pinguis and a True Lover's-knot while a late evening visit to the trapping area revealed large numbers of singing Tree Crickets and three late-stage nymph Sickle-bearing Bush-crickets. Four female Wasp Spiders were found in their webs in the grassy area in front of the Observatory.
