A good selection of waders of over 10 species was present around the Narrows at high tide. The more notable of these included five Purple Sandpipers, five Whimbrels, 11 Turnstones, a Common Sandpiper and the same Knot. Very little was seen elsewhere, with a single Willow Warbler in Cristin Withy representing the only migrant.

Some pairs of Stonechats have now had their third broods
