With extreme temperatures it was not surprisingly very quiet on the bird front with just 15 Mediterranean Gulls offshore of note.
With very high overnight temperatures the moth traps continue to provide plenty of note with yet another Dark Crimson Underwing, Brussels Lace, Orange Footman and a Gypsy Moth (third record from the Observatory traps).
