Birding is a good Hobby on the Clwyd.

Cracking few hours birding on the River Clwyd between Rhuddlan and Rhyl today. Pride of place went to a superb adult Hobby hunting over the Old Tip and along the river, being mobbed by hirundines.
A 2nd summer Mediterranean Gull looked very smart with it's full black hood, while 350+ Sandwhich Terns were making a right racket.
Waders are slowly starting to move with 11 summer plumaged Blacked taield Godwits, a Greenshanks and 2 Common Sandpipers along the river.
Wildfowl was represented by 5 Goosander and 3 Teal.

  1. I was going to go this morning myself to check through those terns on the hope of a Gull-billed tern.. Decided to go to Conwy RSPB instead: nothing spectacular there! Nice one on the Hobby!
