With the bulk of spring migration over now, very few if any migrants are being recorded, with log dictated by breeding birds. A small movement out to sea consisted of two Fulmars, 262 Manx Shearwaters and 73 Gannets.

The Grey Heron in Henllywn was joined by a second bird, also on the Narrows were a Ringed Plover, a Dunlin, two Whimbrels and a Curlew. Hirundines today included 33 Swallows and 10 House Martins. Stonechats are still feeding young around the island with nine logged today, as well as 14 Wheatears. Semi-resident warblers included four Sedge Warblers, two Whitethroats, a Blackcap and three Chiffchaff. Finally also of note today were three Chaffinches, part of the couple of pairs on the island this year, and a Siskin.
