The Melodious Warbler continued its stay in the Cristin garden, showing well but intermittently throughout the day.
A brave of Great Skuas and six Common Scoters were the best at sea whilst the Narrows held five Grey Herons, three Ringed Plovers, one Golden Plover, five Dunlins, one Snipe, one Whimbrel, 49 Curlews, ten Redshanks, one Common Sandpiper, and 17 Turnstones. Wagtails passing through consisted of one Yellow, three Greys, and six Whites with a sole Whinchat found on Pen Cristin. Best of the rest include one Collared Dove, one Swift, two Sand Martins, 121 Swallows, nine Wheatears, and three Buzzards.
