Memories of black-winged stilts, Cemlyn Bay

On this day in 1993 I went to Cemlyn Bay, Anglesey with my Dad to see three black-winged stilts. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had great views of these fabulous birds.  Some time after this they turned up at Frodsham marsh and attempted to breed but unfortunately it was a very wet May and the nest was flooded and then finally predated. Nice to read Eric Hardy's account of these birds from this time.

Also on this day in 1973 I went to Hilbre Island for the first time ever with my Dad and saw my first ever wheatear.
