Although conditions of light easterlies and drizzly weather promised a good day of birding, it was all in all a very quiet day bird-wise. At least three Merlins were seen hunting around the island during the day, whilst two Water Rails, a Jack Snipe and five Snipe were heard and seen in the wetlands. Two Greater-spotted Woodpeckers on the island included a bird that was seen arriving in off the sea, whilst a Redstart, 79 Swallows, two Garden Warblers, 33 Blackbirds, seven Song Thrushes and a Coal Tit were present inland.

 Robin numbers have increased to around 40 birds a day at the moment
 The mobile Coal Tit was trapped at Cristin yesterday, along with around 100 new birds
