A quiet morning was brightened up by the trapping of two Common Redpolls in Cristin garden mid-morning. Two Sand Martins, four Swallows and a Hooded Crow passed over the centre of the island, whilst finches over and in the gardens included six Siskins, 13 Goldfinches and 27 Lesser Redpolls

 Two Coal Tits (one was the ringed bird from Cristin) were seen at Nant
Several pairs of Choughs have been seen carrying nesting material over the last few days
