Nothing aside the usual suspects was seen today, although good numbers of common species were still around. The usual scattering of waders around the narrows had increased slightly, with totals coming to: two Ring Plovers, ten Redshanks, two Whimbrels, 57 Curlews, three Dunlins and four Turnstones. A Grey Heron was again present, and a passage of 36 Lesser black-backed Gulls was also noted. Seven Swifts were amongst a flock of hirundines containing 13 House Martins, 12 Sand Martins and 54 Swallows above Cristin; a Kestrel and two Collared Doves were seen at nant, and the Corncrake was again heard in the Plas fields.
