North Wales

Today with a fine forecast we decided to head for North Wales I do love Snow Bunting I think they are really charming little birds and as Kinmel Bay held a few is was only natural to call in.

Gem and me eventually found them after walking along the prom a bit from the car park near ASDA enjoying great views of two Snow Bunting looking for food just meters some times less in front of us.
Well Gem was more interested in playing in the sand but she is only 4!

Also on show around the bay was a single Common Gull and numerous Ringed Plover and a scattering of Sky Lark.

Trying for the Black Redstart at Rhos just resulted in me getting cold, although we enjoyed watching the waders and Gem thought the park was alright.

Finally we called in at RSPB Conwy and our luck was in as we located the Firecrest in with a flock of Long Tailed Tits feeding alongside the railway line.
High Lights on the estuary was a lone Knot in with the Redshank.
