A juvenile Caspian Gull was seen at the fishing boats and four Little Terns flew west.
At least 12 Porpoise were feeding offshore.
Moth numbers were also well down on recent nights with just the tortrix Cydia amplana of note.
Also of interest, a stick-insect nymph was found on the wall of the Observatory this afternoon. It appears to be a Mediterranean Stick-insect Bacillus rossius and is a potential immigrant to this country. However, it happens to be of the same species as that which were kept at the Observatory last year and this seems a more likely source for this individual.
