10th Sep

A very quiet day on and over the land. One of the Wrynecks was still present along with ten Blackcaps and three Whinchats and seven Grey Wagtails flew over.
Several seawatching sessions produced a Manx Shearwater, 20 Arctic Skuas and one Mediterranean Gull.

At least six Porpoises were feeding offshore.

A decent catch of moths overnight produced a few migrants including a Gem and two Delicates. A search for crickets this evening was successful with a female Sickle-bearing Bush-cricket being found along with lots of singing Tree Crickets.
