The winds blew lightly from the East today, which provided some migrant turnover and saw a fall of crests and Pyhlloscs
across the Island. 174 Goldcrests
(94 ringed - 82% of which were males), a Firecrest
(also ringed), and 36 Chiffchaffs
(22 ringed) were seen today, mostly in Cristin garden and at the plantation at Nant.
