RSPB Conwy sightings board
Wader movement evident at the reserve this week, attracted by the falling water levels on the lagoons. One or two green sandpipers have been here most days for the last fortnight, a curlew sandpiper and ringed plover were seen yesterday (3rd), and there are several whimbrels on the estuary which come onto the lagoon islands at high tide. Up to 14 dunlins and 10 black-tailed godwits have been seen this week, a turnstone was reported last Wednesday (29th), two greenshanks and a grey plover on 25th.
These and other sightings on our updated blog: http://www.rspb.org.uk/community/placestovisit/conwy/b/conwy-blog/archive/2015/08/04/name-that-moth-in-five-or-six.aspx
Thanks to Aled Williams for the black-tailed godwits photo.
