Three Lesser Whitethroats were today's highlights, with two seen on the south end and one in the plantation. Little else was around except for the usual suspects: seven Swifts moved through with 34 Swallows and 13 House Martins, whilst a Collared Dove was at Ty Nesaf.  A male Blackcap was again singing in the Nant area, whilst other warblers seen included: six Sedge Warblers, eight Whitethroats, five Chiffchaffs and three Willow Warblers; two Spotted Flycatchers were also seen. The usual waders were around the narrows: six Ringed Plovers, two Dunlins, a Whimbrel, three Curlews and a Turnstone were today’s totals. Two Black-headed Gull was also around the narrows.

Lesser Whitethroats. Two of them had 'pollen hornes' at the base of their bills.
A Small Seraphim (top) and a Rivulet (bottom) were two more editions to the island's moth list. A Sandy Carpet (middle) was also trapped by Nant Withy.
