It was another stunning day on the island, with glorious sunshine and very light northerlies making for very pleasant conditions. There were a few more migrants around too, the highlights of which included a Wryneck near Ty Pellaf, a Turtle Dove 'purring' in Plas Withy, and a Ring Ouzel in Ty Capel garden. A movement of about 300 Swallows took place over the mountain in the early morning, although other overhead passage migrants were scarce. Goldcrest numbers were again reasonably high, with about 25 recorded today. Numbers of common migrants shall follow later once the daily log has been completed.

The Wryneck which was ringed at Cristin two days ago was seen quite frequently along the trackside this morning. It was not seen yesterday 
Goldcrest numbers have been quite good in the last week, with almost 40 recorded one day 
A couple of Sparrowhawks continue to keep passerines on their guard around the island
