Yet another quiet day bird-wise continued the quiet winter pattern. Most birds were feeding in and on Solfach as usual with counts of commoner species coming to: a Grey Heron, five Shelducks, fifteen Mallards, five Purple Sandpipers, twenty two Redshanks, twenty one Turnstones, twenty three Rock Pipits, a Pied Wagtail and twenty eight Choughs. Two Woodpigeons at nant were the only other birds of note.

The rotting kelp piles on Solfach have provided most of the entertainment recently. Redshanks and Purple Sandpipers have been a few of many making use of the maggots and flies. Pictures (c) Ben Porter
