A Woodlark found at the North end of the island midday was by far the best bird of a mostly overcast and windy day. This is the first spring record of this species for many years, and is the 16th record for the island. In other news, three Swallows flew past out to sea, eight Chiffchaffs, 33 Willow Wablers and six Goldcrests were mostly new birds and a single Black Redstart in Traeth Ffynnon was another new arrival. 

 The Woodlark spent most of the day on the hillside above Ty Capel
Both Blue Tits and Great Tits have both been observed carrying nesting material in the direction of Cristin recently. Great Tits only bred on the island from 1984 to 1986, and Blue Tits are also a rare breeder
