Birding in the rain!

Dont let a little rain stop birding!

Yday we set off from Trefriw and headed for the Gwydyr Forest where had stunning views of Cuckoo, Redstart, Tree Pipit.

Further into Snowdonia we enjoyed Wood Warbler, Pied Flycatcher, Redpoll, Goosander, Common Sandpiper.

Then on to Anglesey for masses of terns, Mediterranean Gulls, Ruff, loads of Whimbrel, Bar tailed Godwits all at Cemlyn.

Holyhead served up Black Guillemots and at South Stack Puffins and Chough showed off while offshore we had 2 Arctic Skuas and Manx Shearwaters!

A really great day guiding with 95 species and we even had time for two tea breaks and a lunch stop - how civilised! And the rain? What rain? Birds didn't mind a bit.
