RSPB Conwy sightings board

Green sandpiper has been a daily sighting here this week (with two yesterday and today), several common sandpipers are also on the mud, and the black-tailed godwits look superb in their orange plumage - there are 14 here today.  A few dunlins have been seen (three today, for example), and there are already hundreds of redshanks and curlews roosting and feeding here, with whimbrel seen most days.  A knot was seen on the estuary and on the lagoons last weekend, and two greenshanks on Sunday. Best bird of the week was a wood sandpiper last Saturday; unfortunately it didn't stick around.

More sightings on the reserve blog, plus an explanation of where the lagoon goes in summer.
