It was a disappointingly quiet day, despite very light Easterly winds and cloud cover in the early hours. There was hardly anything of note present during the day, although a Hooded Crow flew over the mountain, along with a Common Buzzard. Visible migration was also in evidence in terms of hirundine movement, with a total of 357 Swallows and 48 House Martins seen passing overhead, along with three SwiftsSpotted Flycatcher numbers remained in their double figures, with 28 individuals recorded; a Whinchat, 27 Common Whitethroats, a Garden Warbler, a Reed Warbler and a handful of Sedge and Willow Warblers were also seen.
