After a miserable, drizzly morning, the afternoon was bright and sunny with little wind. Birds were thin on the ground again, with a very similar number of passerines to the previous day: 11 Chiffchaffs, five Goldcrests, two Spotted Flycatchers, a Whitethroat, a Blackcap, ten Wheatears, three Greenfinches and two House Martins were the best on offer. Two Knots, a Bar-tailed Godwit, four Whimbrels, nine Dunlins and the three Teals were in Solfach, a Snipe was in the wetlands and a Water Rail was still in Cristin Withy. A single Arctic Skua and two Common Gulls were the only noteworthy birds seen passing at sea.
