Had a walk around RSPB Conwy early this morning and again got caught in the rain! Is this really May?!
Great to see the Little ringed Plovers are still in residence. Three Whimbrel on the estuary and a Common Snipe still showing. Drake Goldeneye still on the second lagoon.
The Ganol Trail was good for warblers with both Reed and Sedge Warbler and a Lesser Whitethroat all showing well.
News of a Calandra Lark in Lincolnshire was a bit gutting - had predicted we would find one on the Orme this Spring! Dopey bird! Can't it read a map?!
If it is relocated may well go for it, so if anyone fancies a twitch.......
