The Manoa Valley at 1730 hrs produced hundreds of Hirundines hawking low around the Sewage Works in heavy rain. Swallows, House and Sand Martins were all seen.

Porthpean at 1830 hrs ...Angie and myself saw.... 2x B.T.Divers, 4x G.N Divers, 4 x Shags, 2 x Cormorants, Fulmars, Herring Gulls and Corvids.

The Green Woodpecker gave a clear view but did not stay around long enough to be photographed unfortunately.
The Divers at Porthpean were an added bonus to the days activities.
The Green Woodpecker was a Baywatch Patch and Year Tick.....only the second one I have seen.
