A strong northerly wind made the day feel considerably colder than of late, although the sky was clear and sunny all day. A Black Redstart was an unexpected find at Cristin early in the morning, a Lapwing was on the narrows and the two Turtle Doves remained at the farm with six Collared Doves. A Garden Warbler was just about the best of the summer passerine migrants, although a Blackcap was singing at Nant,five Willow Warblers had arrived on the South End during the night and eight Spotted Flycatchers were seen.
