Despite the arrival of a few migrants during the night, it was, on the whole, an extremely uneventful day. A Sedge Warbler, four Blackcaps, four Chiffchaffs and 41 Goldcrests were seen in the island’s gardens, withies and coastal gorse, whilst fly-overs for the day included two Swallows, a House Martin, 452 Meadow Pipits, six Grey Wagtails, two Starlings, 38 Chaffinches, six Greenfinches, 11 Siskins, 40 Goldfinches and 14 Lesser Redpolls. A Great Skua was the only noteworthy bird at sea, whilst a Snipe and 11 Dunlins were seen by Ty Pellaf Withy and a Greater Spotted Woodpecker flew around the island.
