Early in the morning a Little Auk, another late addition to the island year-list, was found in Henllwyn. It remained for a few minutes, in which time it did a few circuits of the bay and dived a few times, before vanishing from view. A slow, but steady, passage of birds at sea included a Manx Shearwater, a Fulmar, 12 Common Gulls and 13 Skylarks, while a Red-throated Diver flew high over the Narrows. At least five Merlins were present in the southern half of the island, and the two Black Redstarts were still on Henllwyn. 700 Starlings, 30 Blackbirds, 24 Redwings and six Song Thrushes were counted, and 50 Chaffinches, 43 Greenfinches, eight Goldfinches, three Bramblings and three Redpolls were present.
