It was another fairly quiet day, with a similar scattering of migrants inland to yesterday, and few birds passing by at sea in the strong Northerly winds. A Whinchat and a Garden Warbler were pick of the passerine-migrants, whilst an Arctic Skua, a Great Skua and a Common Tern flew past at sea.

During the night, two Greenshanks were heard above the Narrows, whilst a Redshank was trapped in Henllwyn.

Non-avian activity during recent days has been limited, although several Harbour Porpoise have been seen off the coast, along with Risso's Dolphins yesterday. During the nights, Common Pipistrelle bats have been seen around Cristin and the Lighthouse.
