St Govan's

A badly oiled Herring Gull on the cliff top at St Govan's this morning. It could fly okay but was constantly preening it's breast and ingesting the oil. Thankfully it was the only bird I saw which was oiled.

Very quiet otherwise with just 3 Wheatears. Over at Stack Rocks all the auks were out to sea as the stacks were deserted.  Plenty of Jackdaws about carrying wool for their nests and a pair of Chough on the cliff top.
