2 Black-T-Diver and more on Anglesey

A morning out on Anglesey started off with 700+ Golden Plover and 2000+ Lapwing in fields by the Braint car park.  Coron had a huge number of gulls including an adult Med (AD).  Penrhos CP had another plus Slav and GND.

Holyhead Harbour held 2 Black-throated Diver (an adult and a juv i think), a GND, Little Grebe and 6-10 Black Guille.  A Scaup was on the Inland Sea per AD.  Not bad at all

 Golden Plover flock- feel free to count....
 Ad Med at Penrhos CP
 BH Gulls coming to bread. TI5 still around too- did anyone get details for this?

 The adult at the back showing peaked forecrown a bit like GND.


  1. Happy Christmas to all.
    Great find with the black throated diver. Still need it as a welsh tick.

    The BHG at Penrhos was ringed in Copenhagen In March 2011.

  2. Great find Rob. Hope they stay until
    The new year.

  3. Ken had a BTD on 1st Nov at HHH but not reported since.

  4. Nice one on the BTD Rob! Good bird for the NW Coast
