There were a few new arrivals on a calm and sunny day. Visible migration in the morning consisted of over 170 Meadow Pipits, a Skylark, 50 alba Wagtails, two Grey Wagtails and a Lapland Bunting. The Common Rosefinch was present for its third day, and was trapped in the afternoon. A small arrival of Goldcrests saw 32 birds scattered around the island, along with a Blackcap.

 The juvenile Common Rosefinch was trapped near Ty Capel this afternoon
 Wheatears continue to move through the island in small numbers
