In quite pleasant and calm conditions, a decent number of birds (mostly warblers) arrived on the island. The first Common Sandpiper of the year was seen in Solfach in the morning, and a juvenile Mediterranean Gull was also seen here later on in the day. 101 Willow Warblers were seen around the island, accompanied with 14 Blackcaps, 10 Chiffchaffs and eight Goldcrests. 12 Wheatears were seen mainly on the Narrows, three White Wagtails amongst the Pied Wagtails on Solfach and eight Swallows and a single House Martin passed through. One each of Collared Dove and Rook were also noted.

 A single pair of Ringed Plovers continue to feed in Solfach-this ringed bird was one of a pair that nested here last year
