The Lesser Whitethroat was still at Ty Pellaf this morning, and the Great Northen Diver was seen again. There was a small scattering of a few scarcer birds for the island. Six Crossbills were seen at Nant, a Whooper Swan flew along the west side of the island, the first Woodcock of the year was flushed off the south end. A Little Egret (still scarce on here) was seen in Henllwyn in the afternoon. A Mistle Thrush did the rounds of most places with trees!
Commoner birds were very few and far between, with fewer than ten Chiffchaffs, 100 Chaffinches, and only a scattering of Redwings.
