A day with fresh NE winds limited birds on the land and the sea remained quiet. A juvenile Caspian Gull and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull were seen at the boats and five Arctic Skuas and a Black Tern passed through.
Two Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare was seen on the land.
More nocturnal surveying produced eight Large Cone-heads (one brown form) and just two Sickle-bearing Bush-crickets in the trapping area and a Southern Oak Bush-cricket in the Observatory garden.
Elsewhere, a first-winter Pectoral Sandpiper was seen at Dengemarsh.
