The hoards of Willow Warblers from the previous day wasted no time in departing, and just 15 were left on the island by morning. The Cuckoo was still present, four Sandwich Terns were seen and a Kestrel spent the day on the mountainside. The steadily-building wader flocks included 25 Redshanks and the bird of the day in the shape of a Greenshank – although, typically for this species, the latter didn’t stay for very long.

A Crescent in the moth trap was another new species for the island list, as was a smart Acleris aspersana.
