Fewer birds were seen today, although there were still some obvious new arrivals, with the number of Willow Warblers around increasing as early Autumn migration gets under way. A few waders were dotted around the narrows and on Carreg Yr Honwy in the morning: three Ringed Plovers, three Dunlins, four Whimbrels, a Redshank, two Common Sandpipers and three Turnstones were the totals. 39 Willow Warblers were scattered all over the island, and a Blackcap was again seen at Nant. Four Swifts and 34 Sand Martins passed through, and a few House Martins lingered with the breeding Swallows. A Collared Dove remains in the Ty Nesaf pines, two Kestrels were again seen on the mountain and the Corncrake was heard in the Plas Hay fields during the night.

As well as two female Northern Eggars in the Cristin trap, a smart male was found by Carreg reed bed.
