Very little in the way of new migrants but a Cuckoo was a nice capture in the Heligoland Trap in the moat and an Arctic Skua flew east offshore.

Checking of the moth traps last night showed that there were very few moths on the wing but whilst outside I witnessed as a brief but spectacular display of a rare Noctilucent Clouds.
