Conwy migrants

Two yellow wagtails present on the Conwy estuary saltmarsh adjacent to the RSPB reserve this morning along with 40+ white wagtails and a sprinkling of pied wags and mipits plus a common sand on the estuary. Over the reserve 3 swifts were among several hundred hirundines which included a noticeable increase in house martins with 40+ present. Other birds seen/heard included sedge and reed warbler, blackcap, willow warbler, chiffchaff and a peregrine. A lesser whitethroat was also reported.

  1. Saw a female Yellow wag at about 1.30pm on estuary path. A red Kite and a peregrine flew right over the reserve at about the same time. A sedge warbler and 2 greenland wheatears were also at the far end of the reserve.
