Another very quiet day did, however, see a very small passage of finches and Skylarks overhead in the morning. This passage included 18 Skylarks, 78 Chaffinches, six Greenfinches and four Goldfinches. A Woodcock was seen in the Plantation, and raptors for the day comprised a Sparrowhawk, two Buzzards, two Kestrels, a Merlin and three Peregrines.

 Two female Peregrine Falcons and one male bird spent most of the day chasing each other around over the mountain, with their screeches  being heard over most of the island
