A showery day without much of interest. A Eurasian Collared Dove and a couple of Black-headed Gulls were the only new birds, while two Whimbrels, the Common Sandpiper and a Grey Heron remained.

A Burnished Brass caught in the moth trap was the first of this species on the island for a few years. An absurdly minute micro-moth was also found during the day, and has been identified as one of a number of very similar Leaf Mine species of the genus Stigmella.
