25th to 27th December

This period was extremely quiet bird-wise, and on each day a persistent wind blew from the South-west. Two Gannets off the South End and a Snipe in the wetlands were just about the highlights of Christmas Day. On the 26th, nine Common Gulls fed with over 200 Herring Gulls in Solfach at high tide; a Song Thrush was seen at Ty Pellaf and a Sparrowhawk flew over Cristin. The 27th was yet again another very quiet day: a single Gannet, 16 Common Gulls and nine Black-headed Gulls were seen off the Narrows in the morning, two Snipes were flushed up from the wetlands, a Song Thrush was at Ty Pellaf again and 116 Starlings flew over the Donogoch fields. The Brent Goose remained on the Narrows throughout the period.
