The Great Orme Llandudno North Wales In June 2020 Some Lockdown Images

Chough now have fledged young on the Great Orme but so far camera shy!

June can be considered to be a rather quiet month but don't believe it! There is plenty to see and the breeding season for birds is in full swing with juveniles popping up all over the place. We reported in a recent blog that "our" Peregrine Falcons had fledged two young but we can update this with even better news, three young! Fantastic news and so wonderful to have them just a few minutes from home, well actually yesterday over our home! One the juveniles was chasing one of the adults over the town screaming to be fed, typical teenager!

There are still a few migrants coming through with Spotted Flycatchers, Wheatears and today a Lesser Redpoll so still hope for a real rarity. Across the UK good birds turning up with a scatter of Blyth's Reed Warblers, Red-footed Falcons and a big influx of Rose-coloured Starling with over 70 birds recorded already! Any or all of these on the Great Orme in June would be amazing for sure, great thing about birding there is always fresh hope each day. Of course there is lots of other amazing wildlife to look for on the Great Orme in June and here are some photos to show case just a few of them....

This lovey well grown fox cub popped his head out to see who was passing this morning.

The bramble flowers are literally buzzing at the moment lovely to see so many bees.

This Speckled Wood Butterfly landed on the path right in front of.

A male Stonechat photographed today, great to report many juvenile birds on the headland.

June is a wonderful month to see the beautiful wild flowers on the Great Orme.

The Great Orme is always an amazing place to discover history - cromlech a burial chamber.

Once lockdown is over come and see the amazing wildlife and discover the history too.

And of course the views are always spectacular all year round, even on a grey day like today.

We look forward to enjoying wonderful birds and much more with you once lockdown is over.
