The weather was slightly cooler today, which it must be said was quite welcome, as walking round the island is a bit nicer when you have a cool breeze! Heavy cloud rolled in about midday and the bird censuses produced good numbers of waders with a high count of 59 Curlews, nine Redshanks, 11 Whimbrels, nine Common Sandpipers, 10 Turnstones, 11 Dunlins, six Purple Sandpipers, one Sanderlings and 59 Oystercatchers. One Mediterranean Gull was seen flying past west coast along with three Black-headed Gulls. The Little Owl was once again making its presence known at the top end of Nant Valley!
The chicks are getting big! This one is three weeks old

Meadow Browns have been getting hard to count recently as there are so many!
