Very few birds made an appearance on the island today, with stinging rain being driven down by a gale-force North-easterly wind for most of the day. A single Black Redstart, Wheatear, seven Chiffchaffs and three Willow Warblers were seen along the rocky coastline between Pencristin and the South end in the afternoon, where they sheltered away from the wind. Two Blackcaps were seen in the gardens along with a couple of Goldcrests, whilst a Fieldfare in the Hay fields was also new in.

The poor migrants weather-bound on the rocky coast of Henllwyn for the day: Black Redstart (top), Wheatear (middle) and Willow Warbler (bottom)
