Conwy RSPB

We decided on taking the coast road back home and of course a stop off for dinner at the RSPB Conwy reserve [Website Link] the weather was now once again showers but not to be deterred off we set on to the reserve. At Conwy we found more summer migrants Willow Warblers, Chiffchaff and Blackcap overhead once again hundreds of Sand Martins, a few Swallows in and amongst, and ya I found a single House Martin as well. The reserve pools held good numbers of Red Breasted Mergansers  [Video Link] pairing up and displaying before their move in to the mountains to breed, waders included Redshank, Common Snipe, Curlew, Black tailed Godwits and Lapwngs, wildfowl were represented by Shelduck, Mallard,Tufted Duck, Pochard, Gadwall and Teal. We found more Wheatears 2 male and a female, a Little Egret, and on the Estuary Grey Herons, Wigeon and Redshank , that was the end of a splendid weekend 70 species in total visited some splendid reserves saw some splendid birds and eat some splendid chocolate cake.
