Cemaes Area Update

Last week Mike Smith had a few Jays in the Cemaes area. I had one in Llanrhuddlad on Friday and Tony had one at Wylfa today, possibly immigrants? Yesterday Reg was at Carmel head. He had27 Bramblings, 2 Snow Bunts and 2 Crossbills, plus a Ruff at Cemlyn. Highlight however was 3 Bewick's Swans flying offshore, a very good bird for Anglesey nowerdays! I had an hour on Wylfa this morning before I had to go to a Christening in Runcorn.There wasn't a lot on the headland, but that may have been due to the male Peregrine, and the male and female Merlins! The female headed over to Llanbadrig and was seen by the observer who had the Richard's Pipit and Lap bunt there. Any ideas who that was? Vis mig was light but included a few Redpolls and Siskins plus a Brambling and a Crossbill. Tony White also had 2 Lap bunts fly out of Tregele Stubble, and I had 2 Great tits fly high north over Wylfa head!
