7th Aug

More of the same weather although by late afternoon there were signs of things breaking down with some thunderstorms arriving. Birds were also much the same with just a thin scatter of commoner migrants and the highlight of our second Nightingale of the month.

Five Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

The moth traps were also fairly quiet but did produce three Cydia amplana of note.
