It was an extremely quiet day bird-wise, with lighter winds from the North-west. A single Crossbill flew over the Plantation mid-morning; a Kestrel flew South over the South end; 26 Bar-tailed Godwits flew past out to sea and seven Ringed Plovers were present in Solfach.

 Only a handful of Willow Warblers were seen in the vegetated areas
 Turnstones (top) and Ringed Plovers (bottom) fed amongst some 30 Pied Wagtails (including 6 White Wagtails) in Solfach at high tide
 Meadow Pipit-numbers are beginning to increase
 A single Swift fed with the Swallows over the north end in the morning
Five Silver Ys (top) and a Scrobipalpa costella (bottom) were in the traps
