Although it was pretty quiet there was still some migrant interest with two Pied Flycatchers and 20 Wheatears of note along with a Snipe, a Green Sandpiper, a Greenshank and three Redshanks. A Little Gull flew east into the bay and 12 Mediterranean Gulls and five Arctic Skuas were feeding offshore.
The moth traps weren't very inspiring but did produce a Cydia amplana and a Rest Harrow of note.
Dragonflies stole the show in the evening when a couple of checks of the Heligoland Trap produced two Southern Migrant Hawkers.
