The extremely elusive Barn Owl was still present as new fresh feathers were found around the Plantation, some of the outbuildings close by were checked for any signs but none were present, perhaps for now the dense pines of the Plantation are its preferred roost. A pair of Sparrowhawks continued to hunt and occasionally tussle together around Nant, meanwhile a Kestrel preferred the grassy Lowlands and the mountain slopes, a Merlin was present on the South End, two Peregrines, possibly one of the breeding pairs, soared high over the North End and two Little Owls were also logged.

Smalls numbers around the coasts were counted and very little passed by the island off shore. Gannets and Razorbills were present in small numbers, a Wigeon, 16 Mallards and two Common Scoters were the only wildfowl noted and gull-wise four Black-headed Gulls, seven Common Gulls, two Lesser Black-backed Gulls, 12 Herring Gulls, four Greater Black-backed Gulls and 156 Kittiwakes were seen
