Another rather cool day saw a scattering of migrants around, although the northerly wind seemed to keep action to a minimum. A Shoveler was seen briefly off the south end, as it flew rapidly westwards out to sea. This is only the tenth record for the island, the last being several years ago. A Grey Plover was seen in Henllwyn, and a Black Redstart was also here.  Four Jackdaws and a Hooded Crow were the highlights of the corvids around, and five Ring Plovers and a Dunlin were in Solfach. 

 Whitethroats and Willow Warblers continue to arrive, and Swallows pass through.
 Hooded Crows have been particularly numerous this spring. 
A Wall Brown butterfly was seen in Traeth Ffynnon.
