The obvious highlight of the day was the catching of this superb Long-eared Owl in the Heligoland Trap this afternoon.

The only other coverage was of the sea where it was fairly quiet although three Eiders, a Great Skua and a Mediterranean Gull were of note. Two Ravens were seen on the beach - the first in the Observatory area for some time - and a Black Redstart was seen around the Observatory.. Two Porpoises were also feeding offshore.
