Today the weather was just calm enough to get the boat across and so we had a change of guests at the observatory. The wind was still from the south with a hint of east in it and it was generally sunny with cloud rolling through.

Hopes were high but again birds seemed few and far between. The narrows seemed to hold the majority of the good birds with now four Wigeon made up of three males and a female, only two Teal today but a little increase in waders with 25 Purple Sandpipers, three Dunlin, 11 Redshanks, 55 Turnstones, 59 Curlews and singles of Ringed Plover and Knot.
Elsewhere areas were fairly quiet, a Firecrest at nant was a nice find with a Pied Flycatcher still there too. A Starling was seen in the wetlands and other numbers of interest included seven Robins, a single Grey Wagtail, a Spotted Flycatcher and singles of Buzzard and Peregrine.
