Not much to report on the bird front but an Avocet passed east offshore, a Little Gull was feeding at the Patch and a couple of recently fledged Black Redstarts on the Point were seen.

The overnight moth trapping was also a bit disappointing in terms of numbers but they did include the pryralid Sciota adelphella - only the fifth Observatory record.

Elsewhere, a Red-footed Falcon was seen on the Lydd Ranges but views were mostly distant and through severe heat haze.
