Worth braving the strong winds for

I decided to brave the almost gale force winds this afternoon and do my usual circuit of the Alaw Estury. Shortly after arriving I noticed a couple of Oysterctachers mobbing a large raptor which turned out to be an Osprey, my 1st for the site.


  1. I went up Drum in the northern Carneddau looking/hoping for Dotterel and the wind was ridiculously strong- my bins were almost horizontal round my neck. Not surprising there was nowt up there.

  2. Big fall of wheatears and whitethroats on irish east coast yesterday (sunday).
