Great day on Anglesey

We took a trip around the isle of Anglesey today and enjoyed great wildlife and some sunshine!

Red Squirrel

Red Squirrel watches us curiously

At Newbrough Forest we watched a beautiful Red Squirrel feeding in the sun. Just up the road at Malltraeth we quickly found a Mediterranean Gull and waders included 2 Greenshank, 5 Common Sandpiper and 2 Black-tailed Godwit in fine breeding dress.

At Beddmanarch Bay a flock of Bar-tailed Godwits fed with many Curlew and 7 Arctic Terns plunged for fish and nearby was a Whimbrel on the saltmarsh.

Holyhead Harbour held 5 Black Guillemots and we had brilliant views of these handsome birds.

RSPB South Stack was next and as always great birding with frame-filling scope views of Puffins, two noisy gangs of Chough and plenty of Manx Shearwaters.
