It begins.....

Day 1 done and dusted, 63 species recorded on the Conwy coast. It could have been more, we missed firecrest, hooded crow and water pipit at Conwy RSPB and surf scoter at Colwyn Bay, plus lots of common birds still to see (e.g. pheasant, lesser black back gull, common gull, various woodland species, kestrel, buzzard etc.). Highlights were a cracking male black redstart on Little Orme, twite at Penrhyn Bay and female scaup at Eirias Park, Colwyn Bay. We also saw three peregrines in the air together on the Little Orme where there were already fulmar prospecting for nesting sites.

Year: 63 (Everything!)

Female scaup.


Male black redstart.
