A brisk northerly wind whipped up a bit of movement out at sea, although there were no scarcities amongst the hundreds of Manx Shearwaters and smaller numbers of Gannets, Fulmars, Kittiwakes and auks. 244 Swallows were also noted moving southward, along with 23 Swifts. Inland, a male Yellow Wagtail was at the boathouse, a Black Redstart was seen near Abbey, and two Pied Flycatchers, three Spotted Flycatchers and a ringed Tree Pipit were also seen to the North. A Black-tailed Godwit was also seen.

 All of the Yellow Wagtails so far this year have been of the British race flavissima
 The leucistic Wheatear continues to feed amongst the normal greenland-race birds
