The wind picked up to a gale-force south-westerly wind during the night, and triggered a small movement of hirundines and seabirds off the coast during the day. The Glaucous Gull was once again seen in Solfach mid-morning, before it moved to Carreg Yr Honwy and then flew off Northwards. Some 820 Manx Shearwaters passed the coast during the morning, along with 45 Fulmars, 45 Gannets, 218 Kittiwakes and two Puffins. 89 Swallows, two Sand Martins and five House Martins passed through despite the strong winds, and eight Wheatears were along the coast. Three Whimbrels and a Turnstone were seen on the west coast, whilst two Black-headed Gulls off the South end.
