With the glorious weather continuing, it was once again a little quiet on the bird front: a Hooded Crow over the South End in the early hours was just about the highlight of the day. Visible migration in the morning consisted of two 'alba' Wagtails, a Greenfinch, two Siskins, six Goldfinches and 22 Lesser Redpolls. Wheatear-numbers were up to 13 individuals around the coast; two White Wagtails were again in Solfach with two Whimbrels and two Ringed Plovers; four Blackcaps, 26 Chiffchaffs, eight Willow Warblers and 20 Goldcrests were all over the island, and a continental Song Thrush, a Fieldfare and a Redwing were in the island’s gardens.

Although the weather has not been brilliant for moth-trapping, a Clouded Drab (lower) was the first to be caught this year
