Today there is a Spoonbill on the Inland Sea for its second day in the SW corner. A Turtle Dove was near Amlwch on the 18th May. On the 17th May there was a singing Cettis Warbler at Llyn Maelog but no sign of the Bittern that had been there till early to mid April. A singing Lesser Whitethroat was at Cemaes Brickworks and 2 Whimbrel flew over my house in Cemaes at 11pm.
A possible Iberian Chiffchaff was at the Great Orme on the 16th and 17th May. I presume it wasn't singing. Also the reported singing Melodious Warbler turned out to be a Reed Warbler at the Great Orme on the 18th May. Warblers can be a nightmare at this time of year when they sit at the bottom of a bush in atypical habitat sub-singing and failing to show themselves! There had been a Melodious Warbler there on the 8th May.
A mobile Bee-eater was around the Cemlyn area on the 14th May. 2 Garganey were still at Tygai's Marsh (Malltraeth RSPB) on the 13th, plus 3 Barnacle Geese, Greenshank, 7 Blackwits, 5 Wigeon and a male Whinchat. A male Red footed Falcon was at the Alaw Estuary on the 6th and 7th, with a male Pintail still there on the 7th. A female Citrine Wagtail was at Morfa Madryn on the 6th and 7th May at least and a Broad billed Sandpiper was on the Alaw Estuary on the 1st and 2nd May (possibly this bird was on the Isle of Man on the 6th. 7 Dotterel were near Rhydwyn on the 6th May (visiting birders). I had a garden tick Lesser Whitethroat on the 10th May with a Sedge warbler in the front gardens by my place of work in Cemaes. Also a female Subalpine Warbler was on the Great Orme on the 14th May.
