Another day of heavy cloud and frequent rain. Not much to be seen other than two Mediterranean Gulls feeding offshore, an adult Yellow-legged Gull at the fishing boats and a Grey Heron heading out to sea. Black Redstarts continue to be seen/heard around the Power Station.
The Audiomoth nocmig recorder was deployed overnight and picked up singles of Little Ringed Plover, Curlew, Common Sandpiper and Green Sandpiper fly over.
Four Porpoises were feeding offshore.
The moth traps continue to produce only small numbers but last night's catch included a nice surprise in the form of a Clouded Buff - only the third to be caught at the Observatory.
