With the season coming to an end, most of the day was spent busily sorting out the observatory for the winter. However, mid-morning there was one last surprise when two Glossy Ibises flew south along the West Coast before continuing south. This was only the second record for Bardsey after 10 flew over in September 2009!

Elsewhere, a Knot joined the waders on Solfach which also contained 21 Purple Sandpipers and two Whimbrels. A Merlin and two Short-eared Owls were hunting around Nant, two Redwings were at Cristin, three Chiffchaffs were in the Withies, a Firecrest was at Ty Pellaf and a Brambling went south.
