4th Sep

 A decent spread of commoner migrants on the land but nothing out of the ordinary except for three Garden Warblers, seven Whinchats and a Redstart. A few birds also passed overhead including nine Grey Wagtails, four Tree Pipits and 40 Siskin.

Three Great Skuas and two Arctic Skuas flew west during the early morning seawatch.

A Grey Seal and a Porpoise were feeding offshore and there were several passes over the Observatory of a Common Pipistrelle bat in the evening..

The clear highlight of a small catch of moths overnight was a Convolvulus Hawk-moth.

Eight male Large Coneheads were singing this evening with seven in the trapping area and one found in the Observatory Car Park. One Sickle-bearing Bush-cricket was also seen.
