A Corncrake was the most notable sighting today. It was heard calling in the late evening in the Cristin fields and was trapped and ringed during the night.
An adult Mediterranean Gull that flew over the narrows in the morning was probably the best bird of the day, although a few other birds were also around. A ‘Commic’ Tern also flew over the narrows in the morning, whilst a Golden Plover, a Turnstone, two Common Sandpipers and two Whimbrels were the best waders around; the Kittiwake flock on Carreg Yr Honwy and the west side of the south end reached 228 individuals today. A Sand Martin and four Swifts passed through with a couple of House Martins, whilst warbler counts came to: five Sedge Warblers, two Whitethroats, eight Chiffchaffs and seven Willow Warblers. The Kestrel, two Goldfinches and a Grey Heron were also around.
