Catching up

Finally managed to get over for the Kumlien's Gull this afternoon, which was showing well on the tideline at Pont Llyfni. While there Choughs were very evident and one flew past very close. 2 Goosander (pr) flew south down the beach. The redhead Smew was showing from the hide at Foryd Bach at high tide. A check at Madryn as the sun set revealed a large number of waders including 223 Knot, 5 Sanderling, 2 Barwit and a lone Greenshank. There were also 100's of Lapwing, Curlew and Wigeon on the saltmarsh.

  1. Nice one Chris - glad you got there.
    Some superb images to compare this bird with here -

    Looks like our bird isn't the palest of the palest Kumlein's after all.
