The highlights of an altogether quiet day came in the early hours, when a probable Long-tailed Skua was seen distantly off the South End, along with a Pomarine Skua, two Arctic Skuas and three Great Skuas.
Elsewhere, fewer migrants inland included a Blackcap, two Spotted Flycatchers, nine Willow Warblers, seven Chiffchaffs and a Goldcrest.

The island's (and probably some mainland) Choughs are just beginning flock together and feed around the Narrows and on Solfach

 A single Buzzard has been hunting for prey over the mountain in the last few days, being joined occasionally by a couple of Sparrowhawks and a Kestrel. (c) Steve Stansfield
 Only two (after the initial 11) Shelduck chicks now remain, although they are now big enough to take care of themselves, and will no doubt be leaving the island soon
