Though the wind was still a little fresh, the sun beamed down all day, and it seemed to be a little livelier bird-wise too. A few new additions to the year include a nice male Whinchat at Traeth Ffynnon and a Spotted Flycatcher at Ty Nesaf. A female Pied Flycatcher put in a brief appearance on the Mountainside opposite Plas.
An arrival of warblers included one Grasshopper Warbler, three Sedge Warblers, 19 Blackcaps, ten Chiffchaffs, 44 Willow Warblers, and three Goldcrests whilst a bit of corvid passage consisted of one Jackdaw, two Rooks, and one Hooded Crow.
