It was a much quieter day than yesterday, although a steady passage of Swallows heading Southward all day amounted to at least 180 birds. The Bar-tailed Godwit remained in Solfach, whilst 10 Spotted Flycatchers were inland and the flock of 17 Collared Doves were again at the North end. The Common Rosefinch was seen briefly at Cristin.

The Thrift is in full bloom on the South end at the moment, although Thrift Clearwings have not yet appeared. One of the heath traps was set on the south end today in the hope of a few migrant moths, although the slight wind may lower the chances of catching any
