Southerly winds are not typically very efficacious in delivering autumn migrants to Bardsey, and recent days have demonstrated a continuation of that trend: besides waders, which seemed to be arriving in good numbers despite the weather, very little was seen during another windy day. The shorebird highlights of the day included a Golden Plover flying south early in the morning, two Sanderlings, four Purple Sandpipers, a Common Sandpiper, 12 Ringed Plovers, 18 Redshanks and 22 Dunlins. 15 Wheatears and 10 Willow Warblers were also seen.
