The winds remained light from the south, and a few sparse showers blew through during the day. The Golden Oriole was seen several times on the island; a couple of times in Cristin garden and once in Cristin Withie. Three Common Sandpipers were around the narrows in the morning, whilst other species seen here included: three Ring Plovers, two Dunlins, two Turnstones, thirty five Whimbrels and six Curlews. A Pied Flycatcher at nant, two Lesser Whitethroats, three Tree Pipits and a couple of Cuckoos were the highlights of migrants seen.
