Lovely clear skies and light winds made for a very pleasant day, although the odd torrential rain storm did pass through. The most noteworthy sightings of the day were two Black Redstarts, two Lapland Buntings, a male Red-breasted Merganser over the Narrows (first of the year), and an adult Mediterranean Gull off the South end. 12 Wheatears around the coast was the highest count of the year, whilst 20 Chiffchaffs and 44 Goldcrests remained in the gardens and gorse patches, whilst three Reed Buntings, seven Skylarks and 222 Meadow Pipits were scattered all over.

During a night of light drizzle, a Woodcock, four Starlings and a Redwing were fatally attracted to the lighthouse.
