A brisk wind persisted from the South-west throughout the day, pushing a few noteworthy seabirds closer to the island's coasts. Four Balearic Shearwatersa Leach's Petrel, an Arctic Skua, 11 Mediterranean Gulls, nine Common Gulls, two Sabine’s Gulls, 26 Arctic Terns, two Black Terns and a Puffin were all seen during the day, most of which were among the large feeding flocks of Black-headed Gulls and Kittiwakes. A Lapland Bunting was seen on the West coast in the afternoon, a Reed Warbler remained in Cristin garden and a Reed Bunting was in Ty-Pellaf Withy.

A Clouded Yellow was seen around the Hay fields in the afternoon, this being the first record on the island for several years; a Vestal was trapped in Cristin garden.
