It was a busy changeover day on the island, although the few census routes that were made revealed very low numbers of common migrants, in contrast to that experienced on island's such as Skokholm today. A light scattering of waders around the South End and Narrows saw a Dunlin, two Snipe, two Whimbrels, two Redshanks and 12 Turnstones. A Wryneck was found near Ty Pellaf Withy in the afternoon, which is not the usual location for this species to turn up. The first Ring Ouzel of the autumn was found above Ty Pellaf, whilst 11 White Wagtails, 11 Robins and 44 Meadow Pipits were seen inland.
