21st to 23rd January

The 21st was, on the whole, a fairly birdless day: seven Gannets passed the North end along with two Fulmars and a trickle of auks in the morning, a Kestrel was seen above Nant and two Whimbrels were in Henllwyn. The strong North-westerly wind continued to keep avian action to a minimum on the 22nd, with very few noteworthy birds seen. Three Gannets and five Fulmars flew past the Narrows in the morning, a Ringed Plover bearing a ring arrived in Solfach, where eight Black-headed Gulls and two Common Gulls were also seen; a Snipe was seen on the South end. The 23rd was a slightly calmer day all in all, although the Ringed Plover in Solfach was just about the only notable species seen.
