RSPB Conwy sightings board
Teal and wigeon are loving the raised water levels on the Shallow Lagoon, and there are plenty of both feeding in front of the Coffee Shop, where water rails are frequent sights too.
A water pipit has been present on-and-off this week. It's usually on the saltmarsh at low tide, where it is really hard to see, but comes onto the causeway in front of Benarth Hide when it gets pushed off the estuary by rising water. Other scarce visitors include a nuthatch reported yesterday (9th), firecrest (mostly recently on Monday 5th), and brambling (3rd).
See the reserve blog for more recent sightings at Conwy, and for news of a busy month of management work.
