It was a busy changeover day due to unsettled weather on Saturday, although there was still time to have a search of the island for new arrivals. There was another good selection of migrant lepidoptera noted around the coast, including a Painted Lady, two Rush Veneers and one Diamond-back Moth. In terms of birds, the highlight of the day was not discovered until the last hour of the day: this was in the form of a Common Rosefinch in Ty Pellaf Withy, which put in a grand appearance of about eight seconds, before disappearing. New migrants elsewhere included the following: two Buzzards, one Whimbrel, four Collared Doves, two Sand Martins, 66 Swallows, 11 House Martins, one Grey Wagtail, one Blackcap and 14 Spotted Flycatchers.
