Although still a very pleasant day indeed, there seemed to have been a significant clear out of migrants overnight, and the passage of birds over the island during the morning was much slower than yesterday. In total, four Skylarks, 153 Swallows, 83 House Martins, 114 House Martins, seven Grey Wagtails and 36 White Wagtails were recorded in the morning, whilst a single Song Thrush, 32 Wheatears, three Whitethroats, four Blackcaps and 16 Chiffchaffs were seen around the coast and in the vegetated areas. Waders were certainly on the move today: singles of Greenshank, Ringed Plover, Golden Plover, Lapwing and Dunlin passed over the coast, whilst two each of Knot and Whimbrel were also seen.
