9th to 10th March

The most notable sighting of an extremely changeable day weather-wise on the 9th was a lovely male Black Redstart (first for the year) that was seen briefly in Traeth Ffynnon in the early afternoon. Three Goldcrests remained in the Plantation, two Skylarks were singing on the West Side, and four Ringed Plovers were seen on Solfach. Despite what looked to be promising conditions- low cloud cover and a gentle breeze from the south-, there were no new arrivals on the 10th. The male Black Redstart remained in Traeth Ffynnon, whilst a Mistle Thrush, a Woodcock and a Little Owl were seen along the mountainside.

 Skylarks have began singing on the West Side over the last week
Seabirds, in particular Shags (upper), have started building their nests on the East Side over the last week too, whilst Razorbills and Guillemots (lower) continue to drift around in noisy rafts just off the coast.
