Another clear and cool day saw the odd bird scattered around. In the morning, a small passage of birds off the south tip took place with a Gannet, three Fulmars. 116 Razorbills, a Common Scoter seen whilst a Red throated Diver had joined the group of Shags north of Carreg yr Honwy. A Golden Plover and a Knot arrived in the afternoon although moved through quite quickly after that. The Fieldfare fed with eight Blackbirds, eleven Song Thrushes and two Redwings whilst, elsewhere a Snipe and two Woodpigeons were seen.
