On the morning round of the south end, a Dunlin was seen flying around Henllwyn, two Redwings and four Starlings appeared to have been attracted to the lighthouse during the foggy conditions in the night and two Ring Plovers were on Solfach. The Lapland Bunting was flushed up from the wetlands and then fed in the hay fields for the rest of the day and the Mistle Thrush was again at nant.

A pair of Ring Plovers remain on Solfach with one bearing a ring.
There have only been two spring records of Lapland Buntings over the last three years and so to see one this early is a good record
