RSPB Conwy, 17th Sep 2019
Eight members turned out for a sunny day at the RSPB Conwy reserve. This is always a rewarding reserve with plenty of hides and viewpoints around the water areas. The sight of 17 Little Egrets on the side of one of the islands was a highlight. Many thanks to Ian Bunker for generously letting us view birds through his telescope. We also spotted Curlew, Little Grebe, lots of Redshank and Dunlin, Gadwall, Cormorant and Black tailed Godwit. The tide was coming in and pushed the Curlew and Oystercatchers onto the reserve. Lovely views across the estuary of the Conway valley hills and the castle. Super day out. 36 species in total.
