Although it was a much breezier day with overcast skies, a few scarcities were again present on the island. The highlights of the day included a Barred Warbler in Ty Capel withy, the first Snow Bunting of the autumn above Carreg Fawr and a Yellow-browed Warbler again at Nant. Smaller numbers of common migrants saw only 65 Goldcrests remaining, whilst an Arctic Skua and Mediterranean Gull flew past at sea.

The Snow Bunting spent the best part of the day feeding on insects in the unusual location just near Carreg Bach
