Cemlyn 24th March

Lovely morning with small amounts of vis-mig going on. Small numbers of Siskins, Redpolls, Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Mippets and Skyark moving over West to East. Chiffchaffs in the willows on the way to Cemlyn. No sign of the Lap bunts today but there was a female Merlin and a Sparrowhawk in the same field! 15 Sand Martins were feeding over Tyn Llan pool with a few others bombing north out to sea towards the Isle of Man. The Black head colony is bustling with still a few hundred Golden Plover on the Island and a few Sandwich terns feeding offshore. A first summer Med was on the main Island but no sign of the adults this morning.


  1. Med-fest this evening! Two adults, three 2nd summers and one 1st summer bird. One of the 2nd Summer birds is ringed so I'm just chasing that one up! More Sand Martins moving through and yesterday Tony White had a singing Willow Warbler at Llyn Llewenan.

  2. Tonight there were 2 2nd winter and a first winter Med Gull. 2 Lap bunts were on Birdguides and I had a Redwing still at Cadnant farm.
