The wind finally abated overnight, and saw the highest number of Pied Flycatchers on the island for some years. The total reached 16 individuals today, and Willow Warbler and Spotted Flycatcher numbers were up to 60 and four respectively. Elsewhere, the first Ruff of the year was seen flying over the South end in the morning, two Black-tailed Godwits were present on the Narrows and commoner waders passing through included 20 Dunlins, six Whimbrels and six Snipe.
