RSPB Conwy - Saturday sightings

A nice little selection of birds on the reserve this evening. Benarth Hide is still tops for waders, with a green sandpiper, 17 black-tailed godwits, 2 dunlins and a greenshank, while the great crested grebes hatched this morning and are best viewed from here.

There are dozens of pied wagtails around at the moment, with a single yellow wag on the saltmarsh this evening (poor view, but I couldn't rule out blue-headed). There was also a whimbrel on the estuary. There's at least one redstart this evening, on the approach to Tal-y-fan Hide, but could easily be more.
