The Great Pool and surrounds also held five Cattle Egrets, a Wood Sandpiper (possibly injured - hence the late date?), a Whooper Swan, a Yellow-browed Warbler, four WaterRails, seven Snipe and a loose group of four Grey Wagtails. 41 Gadwall, 11 Teal, Mute Swan, Buzzard and Stock Dove were trip ticks. Also noted on the island were five Black Redstarts, two Redstarts, several White Wagtails, two House Martins, four Swallows, a Greenshank, two Redshanks and a flock of 70 Linnets. The usual Red-legged Partridges were around and six Little Egrets were on nearby rocks.

Back on St. Mary's, a twitch to the airfield succeeded with nice views of Richard's Pipit and Lapland Bunting. The juvenile Bar-tailed Godwit was still on Porthcressa beach, a Sandwich Tern was near the harbour and Lower Moors had 80 Swallows, two Water Rails and a Snipe.
