After several months of waiting and searching for a 'proper' rarity to turn up, one was finally found today in the form of Bardsey's first Citrine Wagtail. First seen with a couple of Pied Wagtails near the Boathouse, the bird then showed on the Narrows, before flying all over the island and eventually settling of Solfach to give some stunning views...

Citrine Wagtail

There was very little else to report bird-wise: 23 Wigeons and two Mediterranean Gulls flew past at sea, five Merlins were seen together on the North end, two Greater-spotted Woodpeckers flew around calling and 13 Redwings, 6 Song Thrushes and 20 Blackbirds were in the gardens.
