It was yet another day of howling southerly gales and stinging rain- thus there was very few birds of interest passing by out to sea, and even fewer were seen inland. Gannets and Razorbills dominated the movement of seabirds, with a total of 138 and 1350 seen respectively. Four Wigeons, 10 Mediterranean Gulls, 24 Common Scoters  and two Great Skuas also flew past. Inland, the Firecrest at Nant and a Reed Bunting at Carreg were the only birds of any note.

 A small gathering of 14 Purple Sandpipers were present in Solfach
