Another quiet day of birding on the Island as strong westerlies continued to blow. The avian highlights were five Spotted Flycatchers and a Collared Dove seen at Cristin. In the Wetlands, the migrant moth Rush Veneer was sighted, which was new for the year.

Most the afternoon was spent carrying out more work on both Manx Shearwater productivity and population census projects.
