Another ideal morning for a few migrants to arrive but yet again there was barely a grounded migrant to be seen and just a trickle of birds passing overhead. The best on offer were a paltry Common Sandpiper, nine Grey Wagtails and a Tree Pipit. The sea also continues to disappoint with just two Mediterranean Gulls, 168 Sandwich Terns and three Arctic Skuas of any note.
Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
The moth traps were not as busy as the previous night but the catch did include our second-ever Marsh Mallow Moth.
