A very flighty female/immature Eurasian Golden Oriole was initially discovered at Cristin late in the morning, and was subsequently seen numerous times as it flew from withy to withy, narrowly avoiding mist nets on several occasions. A Stock Dove was with three Collared Doves at Ty Nesaf, while passerine migrants included two Common Whitethroats, four Redpolls, six European Goldfinches and a Sky Lark. A little collection of waders on the beach comprised a Red Knot, a Sanderling, a Ringed Plover, a Eurasian Curlew and four Dunlins
