Another good arrival of Willow Warblers overnight saw at least 160 birds scattered all over the island. Unfortunately, very little else had arrived overnight, although a juvenile Mediterranean Gull was seen in Henllwyn and three Whimbrels were around the Narrows.

Over 100 birds were trapped and ringed during the day. This total was made up mostly of juvenile Willow Warblers, although three Meadow Pipits and this smart juvenile Stonechat were also caught.
