Very few new birds were seen during a much more typical July day. The Cuckoo and Collared Dove were still present and 32 Willow Warblers remained scattered around the island.

By far the most dramatic sight of the day was this spectacular roll cloud that swept low over the island during the afternoon. A relatively uncommon form of Stratocumulus, a Roll Cloud or Arcus is a long tube-shaped cloud, detached from any other cloud, that appears to roll across the sky on a horizontal axis. In coastal situations they are usually created by the movement of a cool sea breeze. Picture (c) Richard Else
