Strong winds from the South-west made it difficult to find any warblers in the swaying dense vegetation inland, although elsewhere there was very little to see too. A couple of Purple Sandpipers were amongst 20 Turnstones and two Whimbrels to the west of Solfach at high tide, whilst the juvenile Cuckoo remained in the lowlands.

 The seeding thistle heads provide a very good source of food for the flocks of finches around at the moment, such as this Goldfinch
 Willow Warblers have decreased in number to just over 10 today
Green-veined White
Barred Red. This common garden moth has only been recorded on the island once before
