A wet start to the day again saw an migrant arrival of quality rather than quantity. A Fieldfare in Dead Dolphin Wood was the most unexpected, the latest ever record following one on 9th April 2000; other arrivals included a Grasshopper Warbler in Greenland Lake and a Lesser Whitethroat in the Entrance Bushes, both firsts for the year, and on Warren Point the first Whinchat and single Whitethroat and Willow Warbler.
