Best of Anglesey Birdwatching Trip



South Stack view 2
RSPB South Stack always a stunning place to visit at any time of year.

We enjoyed a great birdwatching trip around Anglesey. In Newbrough Forest we enjoyed a good selection of woodland birds including Siskin and Coal Tit. Nearby at Malltraeth waders were the main focus with a lovely juvenile Curlew Sandpiper being the highlight. We also enjoyed Knot, Golden Plover, Dunlin, Common Snipe, Little Egret.

Ravens were a real feature of the day and we enjoyed some wonderful views of the charasmatic birds. A mixed flock of Goldfinch and Linnets entertained us, on a nearby lake a Great crested Grebe gave wonderful views.

A stop for welcome cuppa and we had very close views of an adult Mediterranean Gull amongst a small flock of Black headed Gulls. A first winter Yellow legged Gull here was a nice surprise, very scarece birds here. Seven Ringed Plover were spotted roosting on the adjacent beach and we had amazing views of these lovely waders.

Up at RSPB South Stack we stopped to watch four Grey Herons roosting in a wet field. As we watched the herons we noticed two Chough feeding in the fore ground! We soon had these stunning corvids in the telescope and soaked up frame filling views in the sunshine.

Lunch at the RSPB cafe was enjoyed not only for the great food but a pair of Chough were also feeding, in the field right outside the window!

We timed our visit to a nearby bay perfectly, just as the tide dropped, a flock of Pale bellied Brent Geese were feeding very close to us, amazing to think these birds had just arrived from Canada. Curlews dropped in to feed on the exposing mud and were joined by Bar tailed Godwits, Dunlin and Ringed Plover. The gull flock here held four Mediterranean Gulls! Again the views were brilliant in the scope and we could compare them with the Black headed Gulls around the Meds.

Last stop of the day was Cemlyn on the north coast and despite the very strong winds we still added more birds to our impressive list. The lagoon held Little Egrets, Red breasted Merganser, Wigeon and waders.

The rocky coast had Sanderling, Turnstone and Ringed Plover. Atlantic Grey Seals were hauled out on the rocks here. We finished the day with tea and cake and looked back over our bird list, it had beeen a great day of wonderful birds in beautiful places.

Chough sept 12
Chough was voted bird of the day, but it was a close thing!
