The highlights of a slightly more productive day's birding included three probable Long-tailed Ducks off the South end, two Short-eared Owls on the South end, a Snow Bunting over Cristin and a Coal Tit over Pencristin.
Passerine-migrants flying overhead in the morning comprised 57 Skylarks, 78 Meadow Pipits, 1200 Starlings, 571 Chaffinches, 28 Bramblings, 28 Greenfinches, 19 Siskins, 13 Goldfinches and three Reed Buntings. A good count of 171 Blackbirds was the highest of the year so far, whilst other thrushes included 19 Fieldfares, 44 Song Thrushes, 10 Redwings and four Mistle Thrushes.

 Two Sparrowhawks have been seen in recent days
