On arrival at the South End in the morning it was evident that a lighthouse attraction had taken place at some point during the night – the lighthouse garden and nearby gorse bushes were full of small birds while the rest of the island seemed rather quiet. A Whinchat, a Tree Pipit, three Common Grasshopper Warblers and two each of Pied and Spotted Flycatchers were present, along with five Common Chiffchaffs and around 50 Willow Warblers. A flava Wagtail was on the Narrows, a juvenile Common Cuckoo was in the withies, two Sedge Warblers, a Garden Warbler and another 22 Willow Warblers were in various gardens and 23 Northern Wheatears were counted around the South End and Narrows. A Black-tailed Godwit flew south at sea, while other waders seen included eight Whimbrels, 50 Eurasian Curlews, two Ringed Plovers, five Dunlins and a Common Sandpiper.
