The main highlight from the day came from the narrows, and mostly solfach. A Knot was a nice migrant found on the beach with another one later seen coming in off the sea at the north end. Turnstones hit a new year high count with an amazing 96 seen around the narrows with five Redshanks, six Dunlin, a single Sanderling, three Whimbrel and two Purple Sandpipers. Other numbers in the mix included 22 Rock Pipits, six Chough and 25 Mallards.
A football match was also organised, a game any referee would have cancelled due to the wind but here on Bardsey that doesn't stop play. Competitive is not the word. After a tight 40 minute game one team came out victorious and was happy to rub it in the oppositions face, with many siblings being on rival teams. A nice way to end another week of guests, for some anyway.
