Ten Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
The highlight from the Observatory moth trap was a Pale Grass Eggar of the form obsoleta. However, this was completely overshadowed by the trapping of Pine-tree Lappet at Greatstone by Barry Banson. Although they breed in Invernesshire this is a very rare migrant away from here with only around five previous British records.
