13th Sep

Rain on and off for much of the day resulted in a few migrants in the bushes including 37 Chiffchaffs, a Grasshopper Warbler and a Firecrest  and 1260 Swallows, 1500 House Martins, 15 Yellow Wagtails and eight Tree Pipits of note. It was very quiet offshore with just eight Arctic Skuas and four Yellow-legged Gulls of interest.

Three Brown Hares were seen on the land and two Porpoises were feeding offshore.

The moth traps produced a Loxostege sticticalis and three Delicates.
