A change in the weather brought about stronger south-westerly winds and drizzly rain, which unfortunately failed to produce any significant arrivals of migrants. On the contrary, there was generally a fairly extensive clear out of migrants on the island. The Barred Warbler was one exception, which was heard calling in the observatory garden in the early hours. Numbers of the more common warblers such as Chiffchaffs were down to single figures, although 22 Goldcrests were still present. Singles of Wigeon, Knot, Whimbrel and Arctic Skua were recorded towards the coast.
