Spoonbill , Quail and Turtle Dove
The Turtle Dove near Amlwch at Rhos-y-bol appears to have departed overnight after a 5 day stay (15th - 19th). However the Spoonbill was still near the Anchorage on the Inland sea this morning and the Quail is still on the Alaw estuary. If you come in from the Llanfachraeth end, cross the new metal bridge and follow the footpath along the estuary for a few hundred yards until you come to the orange rope on the barbed wire fence. The bird appears to be singing at the back of the first field but the grass is quite high so chances of seeing this bird (as usual) are minimal.
