A few migrants arrived on the island today, although no scarcities. A total of 29 Stonechats were scattered throughout the lowlands and along the mountainside, along with a single Whinchat and a Yellow Wagtail. A steady passage of Swallows saw just under 100 birds moving through, whilst three White Wagtails were present on the South End.
Non-passerine wise, two Sandwich Terns frequented Solfach during the morning, and waders were represented by two Ringed Plovers and a Whimbrel.

Wheatears are beginning to move back through, with seven individuals noted today
There are hundreds of Linnets around at the moment
In the moth traps today: the first Galium Carpet of the year (top) and a Sallow (lower)
