Very quiet on the land with just a handful of Willow Warblers of interest. The sea was also slow going with just a westerly trickle of Gannets, six Mediterranean Gulls and a few Sandwich and Common Terns. Two juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls were feeding at the fishing boats.
Four Porpoises were feeding offshore.
Very poor numbers in the moth traps but they did include our second record of Metalampyra italica. A couple of more or less full grown Hummingbird Hawkmoth larvae were found in front of the Observatory. A Lesser Emperor dragonfly was seen at the southern end of the Long Pits.
