It was a calm start to the day, followed by freshening North-easterly winds. An adult Mediterranean Gull was present in Henllwyn amongst the Oystercatchers in the morning. The first Common Redstart of the Autumn was seen briefly near Cristin, although there was no sign of the Firecrest.
Wader movement is becoming increasingly obvious, with today's totals amounting to four Lapwings, five Ringed Plovers, a Dunlin, two Whimbrels, 10 Curlews, a Common Sandpiper and a Snipe.
A total of 55 Common Swifts passed overhead during the day, their screaming calls echoing down onto the island.
 There are at least four pairs of Sedge Warblers on the island at the moment, and each are currently rearing chicks in their respective locations
 This particular family of Choughs comprised of four young birds- quite a handful for the parents! For the full audio of these super birds, please watch below:
