After a gale-force wind picked up overnight, persistent rain moved in mid-morning and made for a rather grim day. Coupled with this, there were virtually no interesting birds around! A single Whimbrel and 54 Curlews were recorded around the Narrows, whilst the south pair of juvenile Peregrines harassed the juvenile Ravens and Choughs over Pen Cristin in the afternoon.

 Another late brood of Swallow chicks have just fledged from one of the barns at Ty Pellaf, whilst there are generally low numbers elsewhere on the island
 Two more Gold Spots were trapped overnight in Nant Withy
This Angle Shades was also taken from the Nant trap
