Patching from the front door.
A walk from the front door this morning produced a couple of good Penrhyn Bay birds. The flooded fields produced a smart Golden Plover, 40+ Lapwing, 25 Wigeon, 13 Teal, 78 Curlew, 22 Redshank, 4 Snipe and a fieldfare. Continuing in to Rhos Point a nice winter plumaged Black Guillemot was offshore along with 12 G C Grebe and 4 Ref breasted Mergs. Four Purple Sandpipers were in the rocks below no. 75, The Promenade. Just as I was returning home a cracking female peregrine appeared at Rhos Golf course and caught a poor Black headed Gull. An enjoyable and environmentally friendly morning.
