A day of stronger northerly winds and light rain overnight meant that there was a greatly reduced movement of migrants on the island, and just a light scattering were present in the vegetated areas. A Little Egret over the wetlands in the morning was the highlight of the day, being the first of the year . A single Swallow was seen battling its way into the fresh northerly, and other passerine numbers amounted to the following: 110 Meadow Pipits, one White Wagtail, four Wheatears, four Redwings, three Chiffchaffs and nine Goldcrests. A Canada Goose was the only non-passerine of note, being the fourth record for the year.
