Mist had rolled in during the night and carpeted the island for most of the day. A few birds had been attracted to the lighthouse in the night, with totals on the south end in the morning amounting to: a Blackbird, a Song Thrush and three Redwings. Three Lapland Buntings were again in the hay fields, with four Fieldfares by the schoolhouse, a Snipe in the wetlands and a White Wagtail feeding with ten Pied Wagtails on Solfach. Three Goldcrests were in the Plantation, also accompanied by nine Chiffchaffs. A Hooded Crow and a Woodcock were also seen in the afternoon.

 Good numbers of Pied Wagtails were scattered around the island.
