With the calm spell of weather continuing, October started with blue skies and plenty of migrants on the island's shores. The first Yellow-browed Warbler of the year was seen briefly at Ty Pellaf in the morning; four Whinchats were seen all over the island, a Reed Warbler was trapped at Cristin, a Lapland Bunting was on the top of the mountain and six pale-bellied Brent Geese flew into Henllwyn in the afternoon. Fewer birds were seen overhead, although seven Skylarks, 23 Swallows, 603 Meadow Pipits, two 'flava' Wagtails, a Grey Wagtails, 297 Chaffinches, three Greenfinches, 12 Siskins, 11 Goldfinches and eight Lesser Redpolls were recorded. The Greater Spotted Woodpecker was seen in the Withies again and three Spotted Flycatchers were at Nant.
