Another miserable windy day saw even fewer birds about than yesterday. A Woodcock was seen on the south end, with another single in the withies. A Jack Snipe was again in the wetlands, with two Ring Plovers and a Grey Heron around the narrows. Very few warblers were left after previous movements, with the day’s totals coming to: nine Blackcaps (one of which was fatally attracted), eight Willow Warblers and thirteen Chiffchaffs. Ten Wheatears were around the coast, whilst a pair of Stonechats were again by Ty Pellaf. The male Hawfinch was again feeding with the Chaffinches in Ty Pellaf garden; a couple Collard Doves were also there.

A few small flocks of Starlings have been present over the last few days.
