The times of migration are starting to really slow down now and we are getting into the breeding season. The assistant wardens are well into their Manx Shearwater work, nests and territories are being located and noted and today some subliminal counts of the east side from the water gave us an idea of how we are going to count the colony.

The weather was nice once again with sunshine and a light south westerly breeze picking up in the evening.

Avian news consisted of three Canada Geese on Pwll Cain, two Siskins hanging around at the plantation, only our third Greenfinch of the year at Pen Cristen, four Chaffinchs in two breeding pairs, ten Spotted Flycatchers still, five Willow Warblers, five Chiffchaffs, 11 Sedge Warblers with some seen with nesting material and 11 Dunnocks including juveniles at the observatory.
