Today saw clear skies first thing but a strong south-westerly breeze which turned to heavy rain mid-afternoon. Despite the wind there were still 11 Wheatears, 9 Chiffchaffs and 5 Goldcrests across the Island and 20 Starlings were in the Wetlands.

The first Ringed Plover of the year was on Henllwyn along with five Redshanks, 22 Turnstones, eight Purple Sandpipers and 95 Oystercatcher around the Narrows. A second year Mediterranean Gull and five Black-headed Gulls passed the South End.

Other birds included 16 Gannets, three Snipe, a Chaffinch, a Song Thrush and 17 Stonechats.
