RSPB Conwy sightings board
Spring migrants coming thick and fast now. The first sedge warbler (Friday 8th) was earlier than the average, though not our earliest - thanks to Dave Williams for the photo of one from a previous year.
A fly-over yellow wagtail (Sunday 3rd) was very early - our previous first was 14 April 2013 - and the first white wagtail was on 28 March. The first willow warbler was on Sunday 3rd, two days later than our previous earliest and yesterday there were dozens of willow warblers all over the reserve, feeding on the ground and in the reedbeds, a sure sign of birds on the move, brought to earth by overnight rain. Many are still around today.
