Another day of glorious weather saw a few different species finding their way to the island. The most notable sighting of the day was an adult female Wigeon that flew over Henllwyn in the late morning. A Common Redstart was seen at the north end, a Grey Wagtail flew over the wetlands in the morning, three Starlings were on the narrows and a Kestrel was seen above Nant in the afternoon. Nine Swifts passed through with ten House Martins and two Sand Martins. A male and female Blackcap joined the usual warblers, today coming to: 12 Sedge Warblers, three Whitethroats, a Ciffchaff and Willow Warblers. Six Common Sandpipers were around the narrows with four Redshanks, 32 Curlews, two Grey Herons and three Black-headed Gulls.

A Common Emerald was amongst the usual suspects in the trap, although a Mottled Rustic and a Straw Dot were also seen.
