Very quiet with barely a migrant to be seen. A Wood Sandpiper flew over in the evening and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was seen at the fishing boats.
Three examples of the tortix moth Cydia amplana were the best of another poor overnight catch of moths.
An evening check of orthoptera produced four nymphal Sickle-bearing Bush-crickets and a few singing Tree Crickets.
A Grey Seal and two Porpoises were seen offshore.
