Many of the migrants from yesterday had cleared out during the night, and very few noteworthy birds were seen. The Little Egret from yesterday was seen briefly in the Ty-Pellaf fields in the morning, whilst a small gathering of waders at high tide included six Ringed Plovers, a Sanderling, a Purple Sandpiper and two Whimbrels; a Snipe was seen in the Withies. 18 Wheatears were scattered around the coast, a few of which were Greenland race birds; two Blackcaps, 13 Chiffchaffs, two Willow Warblers and two Goldcrests lingered from yesterday.

 Even though there are many Swallows moving through on their way south to Africa, there are still birds fledging from third broods in some cases.
