This is one of three Curlew Sands at Malltraeth estuary today. There was a Great White Egret yesterday on the Braint estuary. Also yesterday there was a Dipper on Pentraeth Stream by the Sewerage works (first in 11 years here). There was also a PB Brent in Red Warf Bay today and a Kingfisher in Cemaes Bay this afternoon whist I was rockpooling with the kids.

On Sunday the 7th at 2005 pm a visiting birder was talking a walk from Ligwy beach car-park towards Dullus Bay. Along the coastal walk he was near the the Lookout box on brick columns when he had a Yellow browed Warbler.
Thanks to Ian Hawkins for today's news!
I saw a hobby on my way in to work yesterday (15th) flying over fields between Llandanniel Fab and Llangaffo at SH 475690. We have also had a report of one at the swallow roost at Malltraeth on 2nd Sept. So, there is the possibility that it is regularly at the roost.
Also red kite flying over the reserve and along the Berw ridge on 12th and 13th (Jim’s records again)

On Friday evening I did Llanbadrig head then the circulat walk from the church to Llanlleanna back to the road, to the "vinyard" then back to the church. I never found a Wryneck. I had at 1 Wheatear, a Stonechat, 100+ Swallows roosting at the marsh and a Water Rail squeeled in response to me flushing a pheasant (made me jump). I will check there next spring in case they bred there. If so like on Puffin Island this year its a breeding site not picked up in the atlas.
