Few more migrants
At least one common redstart around the wildlife garden at Conwy RSPB while there had been an obvious fall of willow warblers with birds seen all round the reserve along with numbers of chiffchaffs. Plenty of hirundines around plus 2 common sandpipers and also reported were firecrest, sedge warbler and a whitethroat while 2 lesser redpolls were on the feeders. A big commotion of gulls over the estuary for 15 minutes or more could have meant an osprey in the area but could only see a couple of buzzards. Later at Rhos Point 6 sandwich terns and a whimbrel came in to roost at high tide.
