After thick fog had settled over the island during the night, a fresh northerly wind soon blew it away, although it still remained very quiet on the bird front. A couple of smart Sanderlings were in Solfach in the morning, and a few other waders were also around the narrows: two Ringed Plovers, five Turnstones, two Dunlins, two Curlews and a Whimbrel were seen. Four Spotted Flycatchers remained from yesterday, whilst the usual scattering of common warblers amounted to: six Sedge Warblers, three Whitethroats, two Chiffchaffs and two Willow Warblers. Four Swifts, 29 Swallows and 16 House Martins passed through, whilst two Goldfinches and a Lesser Redpoll were seen inland.
