An altogether windy day though with a few notable highlights, particularly the Marsh Warbler from two days ago re-appearing again singing in the dense cover of Ty Nesaf.

A Quail was an excellent find on the South End being seen twice in flight before lost in the gorse. This becomes the second record this year following one flushed from the North West Heath in May.

Another fine find concerned a Gadwall seen briefly off the North End in the company of Mallards before returning in the afternoon to Henllwyn. This is a very scarce bird in Bardsey waters with this becoming only the ninth record.
Two Common Scoters were the only birds of note at sea whilst one Golden Plover, one Lapwing, one Cuckoo, two Swifts, and one Starling were inland.
