Another blustery day with frequent torrential downpours saw the main focus of the day settling on the juvenile Sabine's Gull. After flying past the narrows in the morning, the bird landed on the Narrows, where is it was present for the majority of the day. In the early afternoon, it was trapped in Henllwyn and ringed. This represents the third Sabine's Gull to ever have been ringed in the UK, and one of the two previous records was of an adult on here in October 2004! 

On the rest of the bird front, three Gannets flew by out at sea, a Kestrel was seen above Ty Pellaf and a Goldcrest sought shelter in the plantation.
