Old Faithful is back- 5th summer

Not the scarcity it use to be by a long shot but still always nice to see. The regular adult Med Gull has returned to the stretch of beach in front of the Toad Pub on Colwyn Bay prom. It was very dark and gloomy this morning, hence the rubbish iPhone pic.  Not much birding lately due to work but summer holidays now means more time to get out and watch birds. Local early morning birding today along the prom from Rhos to the Bay produced 10+ Sandwich Tern, 50+ Black headed Gulls, 500+ large gulls- HGs, LBBGs and a few GBBGs. Offshore at least 200+ Common Scoter and 30+ Kittiwake. 13 Turnstone and 200+ Curlew flying around at high tide and a superb juv Peregrine Falcon terrorising them.
