Though a calm day originally the wind soon picked up and by the afternoon it was quite gusty. A total of 64 Gannets were logged including a flock of 35 which plunged close-in off Pen Cristin giving great views. The Narrows had eight Curlews, three Redshanks, and 13 Turnstones whilst two Black-headed Gulls passed at sea (no doubt the vanguard of the thousands due to pass the island in the next few weeks).
The first Meadow Browns are starting to emerge, this one showing at Cristin
