Dotterel still present on Great Orme

The showy juvenile Dotterel was again performing on the Great Orme limestone headland this morning. Whinchat, 2 Wheatear and one Whitethroat the only mogrants of note. The Dotterel favours the short grassy area just north opf the cairn. Be careful where yolu walk as you can almost step on it before you see it. Many birders walked past it this morning totally unaware that it was sitting only feet away! Nearby at Conwy RSPB, four Curlew Sandpipers are showing amongst the regular waders.
