Today was a reasonably calm day compared to what we have had recently and the sun was out with only a little drizzle of rain in the evening.

Today the highlights came from the morning, when an Osprey headed south along the mountain, nant held 24 Willow Warblers and the south end produced some good numbers with 242 Linnets, 124 Meadow Pipits, 316 Kittiwakes, and 51 Curlew. Birds of prey put in a good show today with the already mentioned Osprey, singles of Buzzard and Peregrine and two Sparrowhawks, a male and a female.

Other good numbers included two Grey Heron, 11 Redshank, 29 Turnstone, a single Mediterranean Gull, two Black-headed Gulls, 40 Rock Pipits, a single Robin, 24 Wheatears and six Chaffinch
