Wednesday 22 May 2024

It was a drizzly day on Enlli with strong north-westerly winds. The dreich conditions resulted in two Golden Plovers dropping in onto the South End. Other wader totals came to six Dunlins, four Whimbrels and a Curlew. 

It was quiet on the passerine front, the highlights being a Garden Warbler singing in Cristin garden along with a Spotted Flycatcher, a Chiffchaff and a Willow Warbler, and two Sedge Warblers in the Wetlands. 

Other birds included a Grey Heron in the Wetlands, a Peregrine over the Mountain and three Shelducks in Henllwyn.
