The Water Pipit remained on Solfach for both days, and represented the most noteworthy bird on the island during this period. Both days were otherwise very quiet, with hardly any new arrivals in despite the very calm conditions. A Merlin terrorised the Rock Pipits on Solfach on and off throughout the day on the 26th, whilst singles of Sparrowhawk and Kestrel were also recorded around the island. Four Redwings and a Fieldfare were present around Ty Pellaf in the early morning. A Woodcock and one Snipe were flushed from the wetlands on the 27th, and a flock of 11 Common Scoters flew North past the island out to sea.

 The Water Pipit continued to feed alongside the Rock Pipits, although would get chased away by particularly territorial birds
