Quiet on the land with a flock of four Egyptian Geese being the dubious highlight. Offshore, a Leach's Petrel heading west was a nice surprise along with a Tufted Duck east and 51 Mediterranean Gulls, two Arctic Skuas and 383 Gannets.
Seven Porpoises, two Grey Seals and a Common Seal were seen offshore.
The moth traps produced a remarkable total of 25 Delicates and a new species for the Observatory in the form of a Matthew's Wainscot. A Southern Oak Bush-cricket and four Mediterranean Stick-insects were seen in the brambles growing against the Observatory building.
The Pallid Harrier continues to show well at times at Dengemarsh with mid-afternoon seemingly becoming the best time to see it. .
