A few island scarcities were seen on another very wet and windy day. The highlights came in the form of a Ruff in Henllwyn, a Greater-spotted Woodpecker in the plantation and a Tufted Duck around the Narrows (27th island record). A good passage of notable species out to sea included a Sooty Shearwater, a Balearic Shearwater, four Pomarine Skuas, five Arctic Skuas, three Long-tailed Skuas, a Great Skua, a Mediterranean Gull and an Arctic Tern. A small arrival of common migrants was noted in the vegetated areas, with Blackcaps increasing to 15 individuals, whilst a Whitethroat, 14 Chiffchaffs and 32 Goldcrests were also present.
