There were very few noteworthy sightings during a slightly calmer day. Two Bar-tailed Godwits were seen in Henllwyn mid-afternoon, whilst a single Arctic Skua, two Bonxies and a Common Gull flew past at sea. Two Tree Pipits and ten Grey Wagtails flew south in the morning, and 17 Goldcrests arrived inland.

 The Melodious Warbler has been feeding ravenously on large black flies over the last few days. When first trapped on Friday, the bird weighed 10.2 grams, which is less than some Willow Warblers weigh. Today, the bird was re-trapped, and weighed 12 grams.
