Cold and strong Northerly winds, coupled with frequent heavy showers kept migrants away today. 22 Whimbrels were seen on land and out to sea in the morning, a Snipe was flushed from the wetlands and the same Common Sandpiper was again present in Solfach. A Grasshopper Warbler was heard singing in Cristin Withy in the afternoon, a Song Thrush was near the Schoolhouse, the Scandinavian Rock Pipit was seen in Solfach and 25 Swallows and two House Martins, battled North over the island during the day.
