A Golden Oriole at Cristin midday was by far the highlight of an extremely windy day. Golden Orioles are just about annual on Bardsey, with at least one being recorded every year for the last seven years.
A single Tree Pipit in the Withies was the only other passerine-migrant of note.

A decent movement of seabirds in the morning saw almost 3000 Manx Shearwaters passing the South End, along with 48 Arctic Terns and 13 'Commic' Terns.
