RSPB Conwy sightings board
This week's waders include green sandpiper, up to 20 black-tailed godwits and 35 dunlins, ruff, ringed plover, whimbrel, greenshank, knot and snipe. Up to 90 little egrets have been feeding on the estuary this week, while three Sandwich terns were a surprise addition to the monthly Wetland Bird Survey and a Mediterranean gull was a bonus on Friday (14th).
We've seen more lesser whitethroats over the weekend, and it's been a good autumn for redstarts, with one or two on several dates over the last couple of weeks. Other highlights include spotted flycatcher, stock dove and stonechat, but perhaps bird of the week was a hobby on Friday evening (14th).
