A brisk South-easterly wind kept up today but between the frequent heavy showers a few birds were seen. A scattering of migrants included a few Willow Warblers on the south end, 20 Willow Warblers, 5 Chiffchaffs, 3 Whitethroats, 3 Spotted Flycatchers and a Garden Warbler at Nant. Two Melodious Warblers remain in Cristin garden. Movement at sea was also noted with the highlight being 3 Black Terns passing close by in the morning; 250 Common Terns, a few Arctic Terns, 2 Arctic Skuas, 13 Common Scoters and some Sandwich Tern also moved through. Two Sanderlings, two Knots and two Common Sandpipers were feeding with the usual Turnstones and Ringed Plovers in Solfach.
