In terms of the day's waders, a single Ringed Plover was seen at the North End, a Whimbrel, two Curlews and two Redshanks were seen around The Narrows, and three Common Sandpipers were dotted around the coast. A Collared Dove flying from garden to garden was new in, although the same juvenile Cuckoo continued to linger. Three Swifts darted south over the Lighthouse, and a very small movement of hirundines included a Sand Martin and a handful of Swallows. A Blackcap brood was discovered at Nant, with at least three juveniles fresh out of the nest- this is the first time Blackcaps have successfully reared young for many years here.
It was an excellent night for moth trapping, with a combined total between the three Heath traps of over 250 moths. The trap at Cristin produced a new species for the island - a Scallop Shell - and the Nant Withy trap attracted a Barred Red, which is just the second record for Bardsey. Aside these species, there were also plenty of Garden Tigers, Dark Arches, Crescent Darts and Scarce Footmans, along with Single-dotted Wave, Turnip Moth and Grass Emerald.
