After a misty start to the day, the sun soon burst through to warm up the island, which is when most of the birds emerged from the withies and gardens. The most obvious arrival of migrants was a good count of 67 Willlow Warblers, which were mainly seen on the south end; a Grasshopper Warbler and a Sedge Warbler were also present here. Overhead, two Kestrels, a Buzzard and nine Swifts passed through.

 During the night, the Cristin Moth trap caught 200 moths of 40 species, including the first Burnished Brass of the year (upper) and the fourth Lychnis (lower) for the island
This smart White Plume Moth was also trapped
