A rather wet and windy day saw very little on the bird front. A movement of over 7000 Manx Shearwaters took place throughout the day, particularly in the late afternoon, although there were very few other species passing by, aside a single Teal and a Golden Plover on the South End.
At high tide, at least six Whimbrels, three Dunlins, three Turnstones, a Purple Sandpiper and three Ringed Plovers (including a bird of the race C.h. psammadroma) were seen.
Otherwise, 25 Swifts flew South in the morning, a Cuckoo was singing at Nant, and three Spotted Flycatchers were present.

 Hundreds of Manx Shearwaters passed the South End in the late afternoon, totalling at over 3000
 Rock Pipit
Three of the four pairs of Stonechat have now hatched broods of three chicks each
