27th to 29th January

The 27th was another very quiet day with a persistent North westerly keeping temperatures down. Highlights of the day included a Gannet off the coast, a Song Thrush in the wetlands and two Whimbrels in Henllwyn. The 28th was a lovely calm day, making a welcome change from the last week or so of continual windy weather. The calm weather also brought a few new birds to the island: a Woodpigeon seen in the plantation, 26 Linnets were in the North-west fields, a Sparrowhawk and a Kestrel were along the mountainside, 400 Starlings and a Raven flew high over the Narrows and a Red-throated Diver was seen off the Narrows. The 29th was an extremely miserable and cold day with heavy downpours persisting throughout. Two Woodpigeons at Nant, a Little Owl heard at dawn and a Purple Sandpiper on Solfach were the most noteworthy species seen.
