A much duller day weather-wise failed to produce anywhere near the number of birds seen yesterday, although a few notable species were seen. The first Long-tailed Duck of the year was seen off the west side in the morning, along with two Mediterranean Gulls.  Three Greater-spotted Woodpeckers, a Mistle Thrush, a Reed Warbler and 33 Goldcrests were seen in the island's gardens, whilst 40 Swallows, 126 Chaffinches, five Bramblings, 24 Greenfinches, two Lesser Redpolls and a Snow Bunting were present overhead and in the withies.

The first Brambling to ringed this year was trapped at Cristin, along with a few Redwings and a handful of finches
