In comparison to the previous few days, today was, on the whole, a more eventful day. Little was seen in the morning, although a Rook, three Ring Plovers, four Gannets and a Manx Shearwater did make an appearance. Warblers were more plentiful than previous days, with ten Blackcaps, thirty two Willow Warblers and eight Chiffchaffs feeding in the shelter of the vegetation on the island. Swallows moved through during the day, with thirty four individuals seen; three Sand Martins were also amongst them. The Hawfinch appeared in Ty Pellaf garden whilst two hundred Linnets were in the north-west fields. Four Wheatears were around the coast.

A few pairs of Chough have been seen flying towards the east side of the mountain with nesting material. Pictures (c) Ben Porter
