The sodden arrival of the week’s visitors during a lengthy torrential downpour meant that little wildlife was observed for much of the day. After the eventual cessation of the deluge early in the afternoon the weather did improve, but not many new birds were around. Seven Common Redshanks, six Eurasian Curlews and the Grey Heron were around the coast and nine Common Scoters –the first for quite a while – were seen flying by at sea.

Late in the afternoon, the first Hummingbird Hawkmoth of the year was seen feeding in the garden of Ty Bach.
