Anglesey News

At Cemlyn on the 9th there was a Grasshopper Warbler, Common Sandpiper, overwintering Whimbrel, 30 White Wags, 2 Hoodies, 15 Med Gulls and a Tree Pipit over. 2 Iceland Gulls were still on the ploughed field on the west side of Bodafon Mountain but no sign of the 2 Glaucs seen earlier in the week. 1 Garganey and 4 Marsh Harriers were also at Malltraeth RSPB yesterday.
On the 6th there were upto 7 Cattle Egrets in the Malltraeth Cob- Pont Marquis area. The 2 extra birds could have been the two birds Martin found 1 mile west of Llyn Llygeirain on the 3rd that I saw fly off towards Church bay. BN Grebe was still on the Inland sea on the 5th. The Summer Plumaged Slav appeared on Llyn Llewennan on the 3rd. No sign on the 4th and 5th but the LT Duck was joined by a Scaup and a Great White egret. Also last weekend, my highlight was seeing the cracking male British Yellow Wagtail at Cemlyn. Also this high pressure this weekend has seen a good arrival of many other summer migrants.
