Another day clocked up for our pet Melodious Warbler still favouring the Willow and Damsons of Cristin.
The Narrows continue to provide plenty of interest with one Dunlin, four Whimbrels, 29 Curlews, ten Redshanks, one Common Sandpiper, 44 Turnstones, 16 Pied Wagtails, and 12 White Wagtails logged. Up to ten Grey Wagtails flew over whilst 18 Fulmars and four Common Scoters passed at sea.
Further sightings from inland are highlighted by a lone Whinchat and the arrival of 24 Goldcrests. Dotted around were nine Wheatears, one Garden Warbler, two Blackcaps, four Chiffchaffs, 12 Willow Warblers, and one Collared Dove.
