A very small amount of hirundine passage appeared to be in progress during the morning, with two Sand Martins passing through with a handful of Barn swallows. Otherwise, the only bird of note was a Grey Heron.

A trip to the nearby Gwylan islands to ring Atlantic Puffin chicks proved to be a bit too late – frustratingly, not a single burrow was found to be still occupied.

The second ever Southern Wainscot for the island was the highlight from the moth trap, while in the absence of puffins, a Dark Spinach moth was the best find on the Gwylans.
