N Wales a tough opening to New Year

The Purple Sandpipers have been showing well over high tide at Rhos Point with a Long-tailed Duck fly by today. Lots of Turnstone and Redshank around the point and harbour- good photo opportunities.  Well worth looking at the 'Tech fields' (Llandrillo Tech) whilst in the area 135+Wigeon, 200 Jackdaw, 30+ Curlew and a Knot been see there recently.  2 SURF SCOTER still off Station Rd yesterday plus one off Pensarn so 3 still about.  Great Northerns showing well at Porthmadog Harbour and HH Harbour.  No further sign of Iceland Gull which flew passed SPCP towards HHead on Friday.  Big flock of 90 Twite at Connahs Quay still.  Lapland Bunting at Cemlyn on Sat too with 80 Skylark.

Not bad despite the weather! 

Many of the beaches have altered after the storms and there's glass strewn over Conwy Morfa after the sea eroded an old bottle tip! Take care if out!  Hopefully next weekend will allow for some birding!
