At least 12 Porpoise and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore and in the early hours of the morning a Common Pipistrelle bat made a couple of passes around the Observatory.
It was another interesting night in the moth traps with four Golden Twin-spots and a Palpita vitrealis of note.
An evening visit to survey the rarer crickets of the area produced four Sickle-bearing Bush-crickets, another excellent chorus from the Tree Crickets which certainly seem to be increasing their numbers and range and at least 30 Ectobius montanus.
