A single Spotted Flycatcher was the only new bird on a warm and calm day. A Ruby Tiger moth was found during the day, along with a number of ‘micro moths’ which have yet to be identified with certainty, but several of them are undoubtedly new species for the island. The first Common Darter dragonfly of the year was found on the mountain.

Another trip round to the seabird colonies was made and led to the successful ringing of some more auks and a Northern Fulmar, as well as the locating of the second Peregrine Falcon nest which was found to contain three medium-sized chicks.
