After starting off as a rather gloomy, cold and windy day, the clouds cleared, leaving clear blue skies and leading to another very pleasant day. The numbers of migrants around remained quite low, in comparison to a few days ago, although a decent passage of hirundines southward over the island in the afternoon amounted to some 217 Swallows and 15 Sand Martins. An increase in the number of Blackcaps around saw 21 individuals on the island, concentrated at Ty Pellaf and Nant; nine Chiffchaffs, nine Willow Warblers and five Goldcrests were also seen.
