Although there were still no scarcities amongst the early autumn migrants, an arrival of 152 Willow Warblers was noteworthy, as were two Grasshopper Warblers and a Song Thrush that had also arrived overnight. On the non-passerine front, a single Common Sandpiper was present in Solfach and 35 Black-headed Gulls were seen at the North end.

 All Willow Warblers at the moment are very yellow juveniles, except for the occasional adult 
 Counts of over 60 Linnets a day at the moment comprise mostly of small families 
As well as the island's second Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing, day-flying migrants moths included a handful of Silver Ys (above) and a Diamond-back Moth
