After weeks of prolonged windy weather, dawn finally broke to a calm, albeit a little damp, morning. Three Ring Plovers, two Dunlins and two Turnstones were in Solofach in the morning, whilst a Whimbrel and two Curlews were in Henllwyn. A Cuckoo had arrived and was present in Cristin Withy, whilst two Starlings and three Collared Doves were in the island’s gardens. A total of 20 Spotted Flycatchers were scattered around, some obviously having arrived during the night, whilst warbler-counts came to: nine Sedge Warblers, two Whitethroats, one Blackcap, three Chiffchaffs and a Willow Warbler. 14 House Martins moved through with 25 Swallows, whilst eight Puffins were the highlights from at sea; a 'Commic' Tern and a Black headed Gull were seen in Henllwyn.

 Spotted Flycatchers were present in good numbers today.
A Clouded-bordered Brindle (above) and a Currant Pug were the highlights from the moth traps.
