A good selection of birds were again seen today although the best bird of the day was a juvenile Grey Phalarope discovered feeding happily in the calm waters of Henllwyn. It stayed in the small inlets in the south of Henllwyn from late morning until the afternoon; despite typically being a tame species, it was unable to be caught. Another Red breasted Merganser, this time a smart male, was seen briefly with the Mallards in Solfach in the morning. A couple Snow Buntings were heard and seen flying above the island and a Reed Bunting was in the withies.
