RSPB Conwy

The male common scoter that has been here since the 21st seems to be in no hurry to leave. It favours the island nearest the Carneddau Hide, but if it's out of view from there, try from Benarth Hide.

Pick of this morning's other sightings were 2 whimbrels (RobS), little ringed plover, black-tailed godwits, male goldeneye, siskin, and a red kite over Glan Conwy. There were many more swifts and house martins than we've yet seen at the reserve.


  1. Lesser whitethroat, 3 common sands and 5 white wags also seen on a walk round this morning.

  2. The Red Kite has been knocking about. Had amazing views of it low over Bodysgallen Hall yesterday.
