A noticeable increase in the number of landbird migrants included a Song Thrush, two Grasshopper Warblers, 28 Sedge Warblers, 34 Whitethroats, 21lackcaps, a Garden Warbler, 15 Chiffchaffs, seven Willow Warblers and 15 Spotted Flycatchers in the gardens and withies. A Cuckoo spent the day calling from the withies, the pair of Turtle Doves remained at the North end and singles of Buzzard and Kestrel drifted overhead in the morning.

 The highest day-total of Spotted Flycatchers this year occurred today
 The first Rock Pipit chick of the year was found in Traeth Ffynnon in the afternoon, although adult Rock Pipits are still very busy flying back and forth to their respective nest sites
Drinker moth larva. The name of this species derives from the habits of the caterpillars to drinking drops of dew
