It was a slightly more overcast day, with even a small hint of rain late-morning. It was largely the same on the bird front, with a scattering of waders around the Narrows including a Greenshank, 10 Redshanks, eight Dunlins, three Turnstones, two Common Sandpipers and two Sanderlings.
A Grasshopper Warbler was seen in Cristin Withy, and four Willow Warblers and two Great Spotted Woodpeckers were seen in the rest of the island's gardens.

Moth news for the day was highlighted by this Vestal; a rare immigrant on Bardsey which invariably arrives in surges during periods of noticeable migrant activity
 The gorgeous Vestal which was discovered in Nant Valley. Showing off its rather beautiful bipectinate antenna
 The water is rather clear at the moment! Grey Seal pretending to hover in the air
