Five Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Common Pipistrelle was feeding over the moth traps in the early hours.
Our third record of the micro Bisigna procerella was probably the best from the moth traps but a remarkable aberrant Single-dotted Wave ran it a close second.

A nymph Southern Oak Bush-cricket was also caught in the moth trap.
