In pleasant weather a Ringed Plover was easily the most interesting bird of the day, comfortably beating a distant Black-headed Gull into second place. The House Martins nesting at the lighthouse were surprisingly back in attendance after being apparently absent for several weeks.

Common Field Grasshoppers - the only species of grasshopper on Bardsey - are now appearing all over the island as adults, having completed their four juvenile instars, and should be beginning to sing in the next few days.
