Waders continue to move
After the suprise of 12 Black tailed Godwits pitching down on our school field in Craig y Don yesterday (late on the flooded part of Bodafon Fields) , it bode well for some waders this morning. Conwy RSPB at high tide produced a cracking count of 47 Black tauled Godwits, all in gorgeous summer plumage, a superb Red Knot, 6 Common Sandpiper, 62 Little Egrets, 2 Dunlin and many Redshank and Curlew. A juvenile Peregrine caused panic as it hunted. I think we can safely say that autumn passage has begun.
