July is hot for birding

Ask many birders which is their least favourite month and July is usually the reply. But don't believe it! We have been out guiding most days this month and enjoyed brilliant birds here in North Wales, we have found all the special birds that our area is famous for. Today was a good example, birding on Anglesey we visited Point Lynas in far from ideal seawatching conditions. Lots of Manx Shearwaters passing and we were delighted to see a superb Sooty Shearwater amongst them! A thrill to see this rare seabird so close in and in good light with no gale blowing! The UK has had some real top draw rarities this month so July is far from a bad month for birding! Mind you August is usually better! So get out and find a mega. Alan and Ruth
