A rather quite seawatch was brightened up when three Little Egrets flew south and then landed in Solfach. They then spent the rest of the day commuting between Solfach and Henllwyn. It is surprising that even though Little Egret is a common bird in most of the UK these days and that they even breed in Gwynedd, there have been just 15 previous records on the island, though there have been records now for six consecutive years.

Little else of note was seen as most of yesterday's warblers had moved on.
