A Little Egret came in off the sea and a Grey Heron flew out to sea and four Mediterranean Gulls were feeding offshore. A party of at least three Green Sandpipers passed over after dark.

A Grey Seal was feeding offshore and a Badger was seen in the Observatory garden.

Moth trapping produced a Beautiful Hook-tip (only the third record from the Observatory traps) along with a Shore Wainscot and an L-album Wainscot. Another example of the micro Metalampra italica was also caught. Sweep-netting in the Trapping Area produced seven nymph Sickle-bearing Bush-crickets and a nymph Southern Oak Bush-cricket
