Sunny and breezy once again, and the first full day for some of our birding guests this week. An early walk down to the narrows produced a decent count of 16 Whimbrels, plus 41 Curlews out on Carreg yr Honwy. Linnets are starting to flock together now, up to 60 can be seen together.


It's the tail end of the breeding season for most of the seabirds on the East Side, however the Kittiwakes are still on chicks (although a lot are practically juveniles) and so a count of Kittiwake nests and juveniles was finished off today. Viewing the cliffs from the water reveals quite a few nests that can't be seen from the land, so we now have a full count.

Other birds: one Sandwich Tern, one Cuckoo, seven Swifts, five Whitethroats, nine Chiffchaffs, 22 Willow Warblers, four Goldcrests, five Chaffinches and the Shelducks still have their chick.
