Another beautiful day saw decent numbers of migrants all over the island, and the odd bird out to sea. An adult Mediterranean Gull, two Arctic Skuas, six Common Gulls, two Common Terns and a Black Tern were among 200 Black-headed Gulls and 2000 Kittiwakes off the island's coast. The usual two Bar-tailed Godwits were in Solfach with a Ringed Plover and four Dunlins, and two Snipe were seen on the South end. The only new passerines around were a Pied Flycatcher, three Blackcaps and two Willow Warblers around Nant and Cristin, a Tree Pipit, five Grey Wagtails and four Starlings overhead, and 101 Wheatears around the coast; the Whichat was again near the Schoolhouse and a Song Thrush was seen at Nant.
