Migrant numbers were reduced today but there was still plenty to be seen with 40 Willow Warblers, 15 Blackcaps, three Garden Warblers, singles of Spotted and Pied Flycatchers and Redstart and four Whinchat on the ground and a Hobby, 45 Sand Martins, 150 Swallows, 55 Yellow Wagtails, two Grey Wagtails and a Tree Pipit overhead. It remains quiet offshore with just 12 Mediterranean Gulls, a Yellow-legged Gull and an Arctic Skua of interest.
Eight Porpoises and two Grey Seals were seen offshore and a Brown Hare was seen at the Point.
The highlights from a small catch of moths were a Rosy Wave and a Cypress Pug.
