A calm and sunny morning gave Bardsey a passing view of a Cory's Shearwater! It was seen by Paul Massey flying north along the west coast at 8:45, giving just the one view. Definitely motivation to start more seawatching.

The first Manx Shearwater chicks were ringed today, starting with the sample burrows. So far just the South End plot has been ringed, but over the course of the next two weeks they will all get done.

More Willow Warblers on the move today, although we're still not reaching huge numbers, there were 28 recorded today, including eight that were trapped at Cristin. But, with 18 Sedge Warblers in the withies, and a Grasshopper Warbler caught at Cristin, there must have been movement through the island.
