The gale-force wind was again fixed in the south-west, and continued to keep much of the action inland to a minimum. Most attention was turned to the sea, although little of much interest was seen: eight Fulmars, 1260 Manx Shearwaters, 31 Gannets, a Common Gull, 43 Kittiwakes, 11 Guillemots, 42 Razorbills and two Puffins were the highlights. The Woodchat Shrike was again in Nant Valley, the Cuckoo remained around the withies, and twelve Spotted Flycatchers joined the usual scattering of warblers.
