The wind was again light from the north and patchy cloud was interspersed with glorious sunshine. The only different species seen today was a Collard Dove that flew in over Pencristin. Two Red throated Divers were again off the west and ten Common Scoters flew by the south tip along with three Gannets, four Fulmars, fourteen Kittiwakes and a hundred Razorbills. A Linnet circled Nant and presumably the same Greenfinch as yesterday was seen in the island's gardens. A Barn Owl was seen briefly at Ty Pellaf as dusk fell.

The gulls have been gathering on the east side a little more recently, settling down to the usual zones with the Herring Gulls lowest near the rocks and the Lesser black backed Gulls (above) highest up on the slopes. 
The usual suspects for early moth-trapping were caught last night: a Mottled Grey (upper) and an Early Grey (lower) were both trapped. Pictures (c) Ben Porter
