The Wryneck was seen briefly in Nant garden in the morning, and then showed near Carreg Bach later on in the day. A Redstart, a Tree Pipit and a Spotted Flycatcher were seen above Nant in the morning, and two Grey Wagtails flew over the middle of the island. Warbler counts for the day amounted to: two Whitethroats, five Blackcaps, eight Chiffchaffs, 11 Willow Warblers and five Goldcrests were seen. Two Pomarine Skuas, an Arctic Skua and 20 Sandwich Terns passed by at sea, whilst three Sanderlings and a Golden Plover were the only waders of note around. A Merlin continued to hunt small prey around the coast, and  the Sparrowhawk was again seen inland.

 Little Owl
A Sallow trapped outside Cristin Withy is only the eighth record for the island
