An arrival of migrants overnight and during the day saw a good number and variety of species on the island. The ringed Melodious Warbler remained in Cristin garden, and a second hippolais warbler found at Nant was also thought to be of this species, although only brief glimpses were had. Passerine-migrant totals for the day amounted to four Grey Wagtails, six White Wagtails, four Sedge Warblers, a Reed Warbler, 12 Whitethroats, eight Garden Warblers, 13 Blackcaps, 114 Chiffchaffs, 90 Willow Warblers, 21 Goldcrests, 36 Spotted Flycatchers and a Pied Flycatcher. Two Water Rails were calling in Cristin Withy, and a Sanderling was seen in Henllwyn.
