RSPB Conwy in the rain

Well the hoped for big fall did not happen sadly. A trudge around RSPB Conwy early morning, in steady rain, was worth while though. Still three Curlew Sandpipers with a small flock of Dunlin from the boardwalk screen. A Green Sandpiper dropped in from the Tal-y-fan hide as a Golden Plover circled over calling. A Greenshank and 63 Wigeon from the Carneddau hide. The bridge pool was good for warblers with many birds feeding on the north side of the bridge in the reeds. Brilliant views looking down on Reed Warblers and Chiffchaff here, looks good for something better! A call from Glyn later told of an Osprey drifting south over the reserve late morning. We have three places left on our Extremadura, Spain trip next March if anyone fancies looking forward to Spring migration seeing as Autumn seems to be passing us by! Alan and Ruth
