A grey sylvia warbler in Ty Capel garden in the morning could have proved to be interesting, although disappeared  before its identification was clinched. Passerine-migrants were in general pretty thin on the ground, with a single Grey Wagtail, a Reed Warbler, 20 Willow Warblers and two Goldcrests around the island. A Kestrel flew over the Narrows, two Sandwich Terns were in Solfach and a Knot was seen on the Narrows during the night.

Oystercatcher- a Turnstone was trapped on Solfach during the Night, which is another new species for the year's ringing list
The moth traps have not been catching much of late, although there are a few Orange Swifts (top) and Small Wainscots (bottom) being caught
