A sharp rise in the number of Spotted Flycatchers, to at least 25 birds, was the most noteworthy avian event of the day. A selection of other passage migrants was present, although the counts were much the same as in previous days: 58 Wheatears, 22 Sedge Warblers, 10 Whitethroats, four Blackcaps, two Grasshopper Warblers, a Garden Warbler, 16 Chiffchaffs and ten Willow Warblers. A Reed Bunting and a Jackdaw were new arrivals, three Redpolls were seen and 60 Swallows, seven House martins and five Sand Martins passed through.
