The morning seawatch produced 26 Mediterranean Gull and five Manx Shearwaters moving east and the first juvenile Wheatear was seen on the Point. 

Four Porpoises and three Grey Seals were feeding offshore.

The micro-moth Nemapogon cloacella was trapped by visiting mothers at Wi Wurri on the Point and appears to be the first record for the Observatory recording area.
