A chilly and extremely breezy day saw hardly anything of note on the bird-front. A Great Northern Diver seen flying West through the sound in the early morning was the highlight of the day, whilst a scattering of waders around the Narrows saw six Ringed Plovers, a Sanderling and six Whimbrels.

During the night a single male Ringed Plover was trapped on Henllwyn, representing the first of this species to be ringed so far this year
 Although the Oystercatchers are going to be at least 2 weeks later in terms of breeding this year, there are a few nests with eggs scattered around the coast
Green-veined White. There have been literally no moths in the traps in recent days (or even weeks), and so it is shaping up to be one of the worst springs for lepidoptera for many years
