RSPB Conwy

On the 24 Aug with the weather looking promising we headed along the North Wales coast to sunny Conwy.

After quite a few showers on route we did wonder what we were letting our selves in for but all was fine by the time we got there.

From the new screen we picked up Ringed Plover and Pied Wagtail plus Little Egret and the odd Black Tailed Godwit and Dunlin plus plenty of Lapwing, we had manged by luck than planning have turned up during high tide so everything had been pushed on to the reserve.
In the reeds as we made our way to the next hides we got the odd view of Reed Warbler and Willow Warbler and Chiff Chaff all feeding up on insects in the reeds.

From the hides we had a ring side seat of a fishing Little Egret and on the far side a King Fisher was sitting in the reeds.

Moving around towards the river from the screens that look back on to the reserve we found a mass of Curlew and Redshank resting up in with the Redshank we managed to spot around 6 Greenshank as well.
