RSPB Conwy sightings noticeboard
Birds heading farther north are still on the move, however, particularly waders heading for Iceland, or even farther. Whimbrel numbers have dwindled, but small groups of ringed plovers and dunlins can be found on the estuary, a flock of black-tailed godwits have been present since Sunday (15th) and a few curlews are here too. A sanderling and turnstone were brief visitors on Wednesday (11th), and grey plover and a bar-tailed godwit were on the estuary on Monday (9th).
For more news from the reserve, including vacancies advertised for Warden and Assistant Catering Manager, please see the RSPB Conwy blog.
