The highlights of a much calmer day surprisingly came from seawards, with two Black-throated Divers seen off the west side in the afternoon. As well as this first for the year, two Arctic, one Pomarine and two Great Skuas also flew past. A slight overhead passage of migrants in the morning comprised 240 Swallows, 175 Meadow Pipits and 15 Grey Wagtails, whilst 17 Chiffchaffs, five Willow Warblers and 21 Goldcrests were present in the island's gardens. Two Bar-tailed Godwits and three Whimbrels were the only waders of note.
