A short spell of drizzle this morning dropped in a few small migrants with 12 Willow Warblers, three Sedge Warblers and 15 Reed Warblers of interest. Birds passing overhead included a party of three Little Egrets, three Buzzards and 14 Yellow Wagtails. A Common Sandpiper flew over the Observatory after dark. At sea, an Arctic Skua flew west and three Mediterranean Gulls and three juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls were feeding offshore.
A pair of Sparrowhawks which nested in the Trapping Area fledged three very noisy juveniles this morning.
Two Porpoises were seen offshore.
Given the overnight conditions the moth traps were fairly disappointing with just a Bordered Straw of note.
