After some initial snow flurries and dark skies it turned out a nice day, with views of the Welsh mountains providing an impressive backdrop to the calm sea. Birds were again at a premium with just the odd seabird and the Brent flock to admire. The small number of wintering passerines included a Robin that was ringed last autumn as a bird of the year and retrapped today (right). It seems top have survived the harsh winter in good shape and may possibly breed on the island this year.
