Around the island c.200 Herring Gulls fed in one writhing mass in the sky on the emerging flying ants, no doubt also food for the notable hirundine movement consisting of 116 Swifts, nine Sand Martins, 45 Swallows, and six House Martins. A Kestrel hunted the Mountain whilst migrant warblers concerned six Sedge Warblers and four Willow Warblers.
Busy feeding on the Narrows in a veritable wader frenzy were one Ringed Plover, one Golden Plover, one Sanderling, one Snipe, 15 Dunlins, 12 Whimbrels, 30 Curlews, six Redshanks, three Common Sandpiper, and 35 Turnstones.
