Effectively all the migrants from yesterday had cleared out, leaving very little on the island today. Out to sea, a single Great Skua and Common Tern flew past, whilst the only land migrants present on the island were 10 Willow Warblers and a Goldcrest. There were good numbers of waders around Solfach at high tide, including a Knot, four Sanderlings, 53 Turnstones, three Purple Sandpipers, nine Redshanks and a Whimbrel.

 Four Sanderlings were feeding on Solfach at high tide, running up and down the beach dodging the waves

Willow Warbler-numbers decreased by over 500!
