Today was hot, in many places around the UK record temperatures were being recorded. Bardsey experienced a south west breeze which made things a bit more bearable.

Three Gannets were feeding at Solfach in the late morning, providing some nice close views, although it must be said that it didn't look as if they were having much success! They moved on within half an hour...
Four Grey Herons flew around South End before landing at the rocks south of Solfach, three of them were immature birds, presumably in their second calendar year, the fourth was an adult.
Somehow the Shelduck pair at Solfach are still holding onto their single duckling, although it is at least two and a half weeks old it's so small that it looks as though it could have hatched yesterday!

Other birds include: one Buzzard, eight Purple Sandpipers, one Dunlin, 10 Whimbrels, 32 Curlews, six Redshanks, four Common Sandpipers, nine Turnstones, eight Black-headed Gulls and three Sedge Warblers.
