A windy day with rain for a fair part of the morning produced a few birds offshore but very little on the land. Over eight hours of seawatching resulted in totals of seven Teal, 15 Fulmars, 280 Gannets, three Mediterranean Gulls, 867 Sandwich Terns, 11 Black Terns, 11 Arctic Skuas and a Great Skua.
Four Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
A Hummingbird Hawkmoth and two Scarce Bordered Straws were the highlights of a fairly quiet moth trap.
