A very strong and cold Northerly wind whipped up overnight, and things quietened down a lot on the bird front. The most notable sightings amongst a passage of over 1500 Manx Shearwaters in the morning were the first two Arctic Terns of the year. In other news, the pair of Turtle Doves remained near Ty Nesaf, a Swift flew along the west side and three Sedge Warblers, 10 Whitethroats, 10 Blackcaps, two Chiffchaffs and six Spotted Flycatchers seemed to be mostly new arrivals.

There is still a large absence of moths in the traps, although this Marbled Coronet was caught at Nant a couple of days ago
