South-westerly winds and bright sunshine today. Early in the morning a Common Rosefinch was sighted and photograghed by Tom Williams who is volunteering for the BBFO for 10 days, and that happened to be his first morning out birding!

Once again there were a number of Spotted Flycatchers at Nant, 11 were recorded today. Other than bird recording, today was an ideal day to start mapping Oystercatcher nests and the first trip round south end yielded 11 nests and up to 15 territories. The majority of these were on the rocks around the coast.

Other birds around include: 34 Linnets, 17 Shelducks, one Siskin, two Goldcrests, one Reed Warbler, 13 Sedge Warblers, nine Stonechats and 11 Wheatears.
