Frequent heavy downpours throughout the day hampered observations but there was clearly very little to be seen in the bushes and several hours of seawatching produced just seven Manx Shearwaters of interest.

Single Common and Grey Seals were feeding offshore. 

The moth traps produced another decent record for the area with only our fifth-ever Barred Rivulet.
