A rather quiet day saw fewer birds out to sea, and little in the way of passerine-migrants inland. Needless to say, two Sooty Shearwaters, four Great Skuas and four Common Scoters passed by out to sea in the morning, along with 12 Fulmars, 135 Manx Shearwaters and 105 Gannets.  Two Sanderlings were fatally attracted to the lighthouse during the night, whilst a live Sanderling, five Purple Sandpipers and twelve Dunlins were elsewhere.
A male Blackcap was seen at Nant, whilst totals of other warblers amounted to: a Whitethroat, ten Chiffchaffs, four Willow Warblers and seven Goldcrests; 15 Wheatears were around the coast.
