It was another very grey day, although thanks to the low temperatures large numbers of thrushes continued to feed all over the island. At least 600 Redwings were scattered all over the island, the highest flock numbering 400. 74 Fieldfares and 66 Song Thrushes were also seen amongst the Redwings, whilst 19 Skylarks, nine Goldcrests, the Firecrest and a Reed Bunting were present inland.
Elsewhere on the bird front, the first Jack Snipe of the year was flushed from the Lighthouse pond, whilst 11 Snipe and five Woodcocks were recorded from the North end and the wetlands. Two each of Dunlin and Ringed Plover were in Henllwyn, and only three Lapwings flew overhead.
