It was a much quieter day on the bird font, although a small movement of migrants was noted during the day. The first House Sparrow of the year was seen at Ty pellaf in the morning, before being trapped and ringed in the late afternoon. A total of 63 Redwings flew East during the morning, along with two Fieldfares. Other thrushes were represented by 39 Blackbirds and 17 Song Thrushes, which moved through the island throughout the day. Other birds of note included two Mediterraean Gulls and 35 Common Gulls off the West Side.
