RSPB Conwy

Plenty of waders at Conwy still today: little stint (up to six this week), two spotted redshanks and two curlew sandpipers. Also today, plenty of black-tailed godwits, single greenshank and knot, and increasing numbers of snipe and wigeon.

Star bird today was a Cetti's warbler, a great find by Rob Sandham picked up on call. No sign later in the day, but could well still be here. It had the decency to land in both the Caernarfonshire and Denbighshire parts of the reserve. Our first for several years, Rob managed a quick snap on his iPhone, which was impressive since it didn't stop still for more than a nano-second.
