Again the waders on Solfach, were the highlight of the day for the photographers on the island with plenty of obliging species to choose from and in good number. Three Grey Herons, six Ringed Plovers, three Knots, 12 Purple Sandpipers, 20 Dunlins, two Bar-tailed Godwits, nine Redshanks and a high count of 98 Turnstones were all seen around Solfach or Henllwyn. The Narrows were also playing host to a small selection of Pipits and Wagtails, a total of 71 Rock Pipits and 22 White Wagtails were seen feeding amongst the usual Meadow Pipits and Pied Wagtails.
Moths continue to amaze visitors after we caught another Convolvulus Hawkmoth in the trap. In 2013 the number of records on the island stood at 10, and in this year alone we have caught an astounding 9 individuals, with an incredible 3 in one day early last week.
