A Grey Plover was attracted to the lighthouse during the night and a variety of odds and ends were seen during the day. A seawatching session early in the morning produced a Great Northern Diver and a couple of Red-throated Divers as well as a Wigeon, an Arctic Skua and two Mediterranean Gulls. The relentless strong wind made it difficult to locate small passerines in the gardens, but a Yellow-browed Warbler was seen briefly at Nant and other migrants included two Blackcaps, four Chiffchaffs, nine Goldcrests, 16 Blue Tits, 13 Great Tits, four Greenfinches, seven Siskins and three Reed Buntings. Light visible migration consisted of 15 Skylarks, six Swallows and a Sand Martin. A Lapwing, a Golden Plover and the Knot were seen in the morning, the Barn Owl was roosting at Plas and a Water Rail was in the withies.
