A 25mph north westerly swept Bardsey today, but the sun did come out in the. A brief morning seawatch produced: 110 Gannets, two Common Scoters, two Arctic Skuas, 2 Pomarine Skuas, one Great Skua, 13 Mediterranean Gulls, 33 Black-headed Gulls, 469 Kittiwakes, three Arctic Terns and 414 Razorbills.

Some variety came in the form of Common Gull which was seen on the West Coast, two Sand Martins at North End and two Little Owls around Carreg Bach. Other than that it was really just business as usual. Each night Redwings can be heard passing over, but only a couple have actually been seen on the ground this autumn.

Goldcrest and Chiffchaff numbers took a dive today, this is most likely just due to the weather making them harder to record. Today just 15 Chiffchaffs and 25 Goldcrests, a third of what was recored yesterday.

Other birds around include: 26 Goldfinches, 10 Chaffinches, one Whitethroat, three Blackcaps, 20 Stonechats, three Wheatears, 17 Robins, 55 Curlews and 22 Rock Pipits.
