5th Aug

There was another small arrival of migrants on the land with the highlights of a Nightingale and four Garden Warblers trapped and an elusive Pied Flycatcher in the moat.

Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

The moth catch was very much reduced last night but still produced a Gypsy Moth - only the second record for the Observatory. Two Hummingbird Hawk-moths were feeding in the Observatory garden again.
