A turn in the weather overnight saw gale-force South-easterlies and horizontal rain lashing down on the island for much of the morning. What migrants has remained on the island were obviously keeping their heads down, and so as a result it was a very quiet day!
Despite the weather, a good number of thrushes totalled to one Ring Ouzel, 40 Blackbirds, a Fieldfare, 27 Song Thrushes and 30 Redwings. Other noteworthy passerines which were sheltering in the island's gardens included a Firecrest at Cristin and a Siskin at Nant.

 There have been plenty of migrant Meadow Pipits around the island in the last few days
