Yesterday's stunning Pallas's Warbler stayed through the night and put on quite a show at Ty Pellaf.
Pallas's Warbler - this Asian Sprite is a fantastic little bird, their breeding grounds are in China and they winter in South East Asia
There was a bit of a clearout of migrants overnight but still a total of one Teal, 11 Common Scoters, two Kestrels, three Water Rails, four Lapwings, 89 Black-headed Gulls, 14 Common Gulls, 75 Kittiwakes, 65 Razorbills, six Skylarks, three Grey Wagtails, two Wheatears, 20 Blackbirds, one Fieldfare, eight Song Thrushes, eight Redwings, one Mistle Thrush, two Blackcaps, five Chiffchaffs, 43 Goldcrests, one Firecrest, two Coal Tits, four Great Tits, 22 Choughs, seven Rooks, 41 Carrion Crows, one Hooded Crow, 16 Starlings, 41 Chaffinches, four Bramblings, 28 Greenfinches, three Siskins, 43 Goldfinches, 12 Lesser Redpolls, and four Reed Buntings were logged by the end of the day.
Good numbers of Goldcrests are starting to filter though
Two Bramblings were trapped and ringed
Redwings are in, but numbers are generally small
There appears to be Robins in every bush!
Grey Seals are having lots of pups at the moment - many of the youngsters have moulted their white coats and now look like miniature adults, whilst some are still snowy white!
