The first Spotted Flycatcher for a while was at Ty Nesaf, 18 Willow Warblers, three Starlings, a Swift and a Kestrel were logged and ten Common Scoters flew by at sea. 12 Common Sandpipers were around the beach and a flock of 31 Oystercatchers was seen flying south over the island.

One of the highlights of the year so far was the discovery of this Lesser Horseshoe Bat roosting on the staircase carpet of Ty Nesaf. They typically live in sedentary colonies so the events leading to the arrival of this first for Bardsey are unclear. (c) Richard Brown
