A juvenile Little Stint spent the day on Solfach in the company of the usual waders. The Lapland Bunting was still on the island, and a similar number of Meadow Pipits to the previous day passed over in the morning. 12 Grey Wagtails, 14 White Wagtails and 27 Wheatears were around the coast, while making use of the gardens and bushes were a Whinchat, four Whitethroats, two Blackcaps, a Sedge Warbler, 11 Chiffchaffs, two Willow Warblers, six Goldcrests and ten Goldfinches. Four Snipe were seen in the marshy areas of the island, four Dunlins and a Ringed Plover were on the beach and a Teal and an Arctic Skua flew by at sea.

A Migrant Hawker dragonfly was seen at Ty Pellaf.
