It was another disappointing day bird-wise, with very little variety in terms of migrants species. Over 150 Wheatears were seen all over the coast in the morning, which then moved through the island during the rest of the day. A male Common Redstart was seen in Traeth Ffynnon, two Sandwich Terns fed off the West Side and two Grasshopper Warblers were present. Smaller numbers of warblers included two Whitethroats, five Sedge Warblers, whilst 67 phylloscs comprised mostly of Willow Warblers.

Goldfinches continue to be in abundance on the island
