Sunshine and wonderful birds in North Wales

It was a very, very early start today! We met our four clients at 5am and headed off into the night. Before dawn we were standing out on the moors under a star-studded sky, the air was full of weird but wonderful calls; Black Grouse lekking! It was magical listening to the bubbling calls of the male grouse floating across the heather in the dark. Slowly the sky to the east began to lighten and through the Leica 82mm APO scope we got our first views of the handsome Black Grouse strutting about on the moor!

We moved a little further along the road and very slowly moved the vehicle along the track until we were level with a gang of lekking males. The grouse were intent on their displays and ignored us completely. The birds were fairly close and views through the binoculars were just breathtaking!

Is there a more spectacular British bird? We think not!

We love this classic 'bird in habitat' shot

Time flew by as we marvelled at the brilliant Black Grouse lekking just a hundred yards away from the vehicle! By staying in the "bird mobile" and keeping very quiet we watched the spectacle with no disturbance to the birds at all!
We wolfed down a very welcome, and very late, hearty breakfast and toasted our amazing morning on the moors.
We also enjoyed Red Grouse, Great Grey Shrike, Red Kite, Dipper, Grey Wagtail, Crossbill, Lesser Redpoll, Siskin, Stonechat in the uplands.
We then headed down to the coast for a complete change of habitat. Again we enjoyed wonderful birds including 3 Surf Scoters, 6 Velvet Scoters, masses of Common Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, Red-throated Diver and Sanderling.

What a brilliant day and all in wonderful sunshine!

Come and join us soon for more amazing birdwatching.
