One of the highlights of the day was a Phalarope (presumed to be yesterday's bird) which came close enough to be identified as a Red-necked - only the second Observatory record. Other bits seen offshore included nine Shovelers, 11 Pintail, 84 Common Scoters, five Mediterranean Gulls and three Arctic Skuas. It was also a busy morning on the land with 12 Willow Warblers, 180 Chiffchaffs, three Reed Warblers, 12 Blackcaps, a Firecrest, two Redwings and a Spotted Flycatcher in the bushes and five Buzzards, 1200 Swallows, 550 House Martins, three Yellow Wagtails, five Grey Wagtails, two Tree Pipits and ten Reed Buntings passing overhead.
Twelve Porpoises and two Grey Seals were feeding offshore.
A Cypress Pug and two Pinion-streaked Snout were of note from the moth traps.
