The only new birds of note were the first Collared Dove since the summer, a new Hen Harrier, a Grey Wagtail and a Blackcap. Remaining birds included a Sparrowhawk, a Little Gull, a Woodpigeon, 2 Black Redstarts and 2 Chiffchaffs.

The number of European White-fronted Geese increased to 48 birds, breaking the island record for that subspecies. Counts of the other geese came to 22 Tundra Bean Geese, 11 Pink-footed Geese and the lone Barnacle Goose. Lingering uncommon ducks included the Goosander, 3 Scaups and 2 Common Scoters.
