Despite the obvious movement of migrants at the moment, nothing of any consequence was seen today. New arrivals seen included a Grasshopper Warbler in the bracken on pencristin, a Blackcap at Nant, two Dunlins on Solfach, a Turnstone in henllwyn, a few Common Sandpipers around the coast and a Sandwich Tern off the west side. A scattering of Willow Warblers around the island included some that had obviously arrived, the total number amounting to 35 individuals; six Sedge Warblers, seven Whitethroats and six Chiffchaffs were also still around. A Kestrel continued to hunt prey at Nant, a juvenile Redstart was seen at Cristin and a Buzzard flew over the mountain.
