A Day Out With Alun And Sue Best of North Wales 20 September 2019

Chough June 2015 1

Wonderful views of Chough at two different location on this brilliant tour.

We meet Sue at RSPB Conwy and then picked up Alun at his Llandudno B&B and then headed for the nearby Great Orme, the weather was perfect and the views stunning. Chough were calling from the cliffs above us and we were soon enjoying the antics of four of these magical crows. Plenty of Stonechats showing off here and great to compare Rock Pipits with Meadow Pipits at close range. A very young grey seal pup was great to watch in a cove below the Marine Drive and mum and dad were in the water close inshore. At RSPB Conwy we enjoyed a lovely selection of birds and were surprised to see so many waders as it was low tide. We had great views of four Knot, two Black-tailed Godwits, Dunlin, Lapwing, Curlew and Redshank. Down the Conwy Valley next for more beautiful scenery and great birds including lovely Red Kite. Lunch in Llanrwst was another highlight at the tearoom by the Conwy River in Llanrwst – always a hit with our guests. Then through the Snowdonia National Park where more spectacular scenery and more great views of Chough. Down to the coast and wonderful birds including super views of Kingfisher and more!

Chough, Gannet, Razorbill, Shag, Stonechat, Rock Pipit, Raven, Common Scoter, Common Snipe, Dunlin, Knot, Black-tailed Godwit, Lapwing, Little Grebe, Wheatear, Greenshank, Dipper, Red Kite, Goosander, Red-breasted Merganser, Nuthatch, Eider, Ringed Plover and Kingfisher.
