15th Aug

Another hot and sunny day after a cloudy start but surprisingly quiet on the migrant front with just 15 Willow Warblers of note on the land and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull at the fishing boats.

Two Grey Seals and a Porpoise were feeding offshore.

The moth-traps were also fairly quiet but did produce an Agonopteryx  nanatella which is rarely recorded here.
