15th to 16th November

The 15th was a much better day bird-wise, with clear skies and calm winds seeing some reasonable numbers of thrushes on the island. 92 Blackbirds, nine Fieldfares, 38 Song Thrushes, 100 Redwings and a Mistle Thrush were counted during the day, whilst overhead passage included 34 Skylarks, 1870 Starlings, 112 Chaffinches, seven Bramblings, 33 Siskins, four Lesser Redpolls and a Reed Bunting flew overhead. 22 Lapwings were seen around the Narrows, five Woodcocks were recorded inland and two Little Gulls flew by at sea.
Although still calm and clear, the 16th was a slightly quieter day: fewer thrushes included a flock of 11 Fieldfares and a Mistle Thrush at Ty Pellaf, a Short-eared Owl was seen in the wetlands and a Chiffchaff was present at Nant.
