Singles of Balearic and Manx Shearwater, nine Black Terns and four Arctic Skuas were of note offshore.
At least 17 Porpoises were seen offshore today but more significant was the fact that one of them was a white individual. Has this individual been seen anywhere else? Two Grey Seals and a Common Seal were also still present.
The clear highlight from last night's moth trapping was the catching of a Dark Crimson Underwing. - the first Observatory record. In addition, An uncommon tortrix, Cydia amplana, was also trapped. A Clouded Yellow butterfly was seen in the moat.
