A good count of 1340 Manx Shearwaters were rafting offshore with 17 Common Scoters flying by too. The Narrows dominates sightings again with three Grey Herons, three Ringed Plovers, nine Sanderlings, ten Purple Sandpipers, 27 Dunlins, three Whimbrels, 70 Curlew, two Redshanks, five Common Sandpipers, 60 Turnstones, and four Mediterranean Gulls. A juvenile Cuckoo was around Cristin, with further counts of three Swifts, 18 Willow Warblers, and 12 Goldfinches.

Late news as well of a Bloxworth Snout caught at Cristin yesterday morning. Potentially representing a new species for Wales.
