Little bird movement was noted during a quiet day. Two Spotted Flycatchers were present, while numbers of warblers remained much the same: 11 Blackcaps, five Whitethroats, one Lesser Whitethroat, ten Sedge Warblers, two Grasshopper Warblers, nine Chiffchaffs and 13 Willow Warblers. A Snipe was found in the morning and the Bar-tailed Godwit remained with 16 Whimbrels and three Dunlins. A single Swift flew through with 48 Swallows, six House Martins and four Sand Martins; a Collared Dove was singing at Ty Nesaf and a Sandwich Tern was seen from the coast.

Yesterday saw the first Spotted Flycatcher of the year. Two more were recorded today.
