The appearance of miserable misty conditions overnight had grounded a small number of common migrants on the island; 22 Sedge Warblers, six Whitethroats, 17 Spotted Flycatchers and a Tree Pipit being the most notable. Three Swifts, 100 Swallows, 15 House Martins and three Sand Martins were counted on passage, and five Redpolls and a couple of Collared Doves were present. 17 Dunlin arrived on the beach where the Ringed Plovers, four Whimbrels and three Turnstones remained.
