Clear skies and mist in the early morning rarely produce large numbers of birds and today was no exceptions although Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps continue to move through in small numbers. Other bits of note included a Hobby, a juvenile Cuckoo, a Spotted Flycatcher, a Redstart, seven Grey Wagtails, three Tree Pipits and 90 Siskins.
The sea was also quiet with the early morning seawatch producing just a Greenshank, a Black Tern and three Arctic Skuas of note.
The moth catch remains small but today included a Cypress Pug and a Delicate.
Three Large Coneheads were heard in the trapping area this evening along with a Sickle-bearing Bush-cricket and good numbers of Tree Crickets.
Two Brown Hares were also of note on the land.
