There were some good sightings in terms of avian wildlife during the day, the best of the lot being a pale Balearic Shearwater which glided past the West Side in the morning. Usually we do not see these dirty-looking shearwaters until mid to late-August, although there was a mid-June record back in 2013. Also seen out to see were 76 Black-headed Gulls, a Sandwich Tern, a Fulmar and 23 Gannets. Singles of Swift, Cuckoo, Little Owl and Skylark were amongst the more notable sightings inland.
A Hummingbird Hawkmoth on the mountain top was a nice sighting, and was amongst another good haul of migrant lepidoptera that included over 70 Rush Veneers in Nant Valley, two Painted Ladies and Silver Ys.
