Very quiet on both land and sea. Fifteen Mediterranean Gulls were the only notable birds.
A Badger was seen in the garden in the early hours again and three Porpoise and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
A search of the area in front of the Observatory produced this very smart micromoth moth resting on a Wild Carrot flowerhead. It is Nemophora cupriacella and is a new species for Dungeness and is also very rare in the county.
