It was a slightly more productive day on the bird front, although still very slow for this time of year. A Greenshank seen flying North down the west side mid-morning was perhaps the scarcest sighting of the day, whilst six Common Sandpipers, five Whimbrels, four Purple Sandpipers and four Ringed Plovers were also seen around the Narrows. The first Tree Pipit for some time was seen near Ty Pellaf Reed Bed in the morning, and a handful of Willow Warblers had also arrived.
Raptors were represented by a single Kestrel, the first Sparrowhawk for at least a month, and two juvenile Peregrines.

 A small gathering of Turnstones around the Narrows at high tide amounted to 30 individuals
 Three Purple Sandpipers were also amongst them
