A very quiet day with just three Arctic Skuas and 301 Gannets seen offshore and 30 Chiffchaffs and 40 Siskins on the land.
Nine Porpoises, three Grey Seals and a Common Seal were feeding offshore and a very distant pod of unidentified dolphins was seen bow-riding a westbound cargo ship.
The moths provided plenty of interest with a Brindled Green (a new species for the Observatory) along with three Vestals, a Radford's Flame Shoulder and five Delicates of note.
