Quiet on the land with just four House Martins, a Willow Warbler and two Spotted Flycatchers of note. Seawatching was marginally more interesting with 255 Common Scoters, a Shag, six Sanderlings and three Arctic Skuas being seen.
Eight Porpoise and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.
Two Grizzled Skippers, two Painted Ladies and a Small Heath were among the few butterflies seen.
The Early Purple Orchids flowered very late this year and some are in still reasonable condition with this individual being about the most impressive of them.
