6th Sep

Slightly limited coverage today with most of it involving looking at the sea. The best of over five hours seawatching were two Redshanks, 22 Mediterranean Gulls, a Little Gull, 759 Sandwich Terns, four Black Terns, an Arctic Tern, two Arctic Skuas and a Great Skua.
A Redstart and two Grey Wagtails were the only significant migrants on the land.

At least 22 Porpoises and three Grey Seals were feeding offshore.

Tree Crickets were singing again tonight.

A Scarce Bordered Straw and two Dark Swordgrass were the best from the moth traps.
