Nothing of any consequence was seen today, although with the wind continuing to persist from the south, a few seabirds passed by at sea in the morning: four Fulmars, 204 Manx Shearwaters, fourteen Gannets, 16 Kittiwakes, 11 Guillemots, 17 Razorbills and a Puffin were the totals. The pair of Ring Plovers had moved to Solfach with their three chicks, and a Whimbrel and three Curlews were in henllwyn. A Blackcap was the only different warbler seen, whilst eight Spotted Flycatchers were at Nant; hirundine passage amounted to: 69 Swallows and 29 House Martins.
