Despite the strong southerly winds, a few interesting birds were on the island. Two Icterine Warblers were again present, with the ringed individual in Cristin Withy and another at Ty Nesaf and Ty Capel. Two Greenshanks decended into Solfach in the morning, and then three were seen flying along the west side in the late afternoon. A Knot was attracted fatally to the lighthouse during the night, whilst a Dunlin, two Purple Sandpipers and a Whimbrel were on Carreg Yr Honwy. A couple of Goldcrests were in the plantation again, whilst a Tree Pipit was seen in the Hay fields and a White Wagtail was in Solfach.
