The day started off rather miserably with light rain and strong winds becoming heavier by mid-morning but, come 12 o'clock it had cleared up and the sun came out, as did the birds.  At Cristin, 9 Chiff chaff were feeding on the vegetation with the Firecrest calling at dusk, at Nant, 4 Chiff chaff and 4 Goldcrests were in the plantation whilst a Black Redstart was at Ty Nesaf. The White wagtail remained on Solfach along with 2 Ring plovers, 5 Wheatear were on the narrows.

Since Friday there has been at least one White wagtail on Solfach happily feeding with the Chough and Rock Pipits. (c) Ben Porter

There has been an increase in the number of Goldcrests recently, joining the lonely individuals that have overwintered here. (c) Ben Porter

Up to four pairs of Little Owls nest on the island; early spring is when they are at their most vocal and visible, with birds like this one seen this evening regularly sitting on top of the ringing hut roof.
