Once again sunny but breezy on the island today. There were 24 Curlews around, with 18 being in a flock on south end in the late afternoon, they are frequently seen on Carreg yr Honwy, but accurately counting them is not easy.

The Chough pairs west of the mountain can be seen daily feeding and looking after their offspring, one of the easiest families to see is from the pair that bred on Pen Cristin. Three juvenile House Martins were flying around the lighthouse today, so at least one of the pairs has managed to fledge some chicks.

Birds around today include: four Black-headed Gulls, one Grey Heron, 14 Wheatears, 11 House Martins, two Sand Martins, 21 Swallows, one Whitethroat, one Chiffchaff and 4 ravens including three juveniles.
