Highlights of the day for me were some of the sea birds. Puffins, Razorbills, Kittiwakes and Gannets. Plus we had Ring Ouzel, Crossbill and some great raptors. Over 80 species in the day and 6 lifetime firsts for me.
This Sparrowhawk greeted us as we met in the car park. What a start to the day.
As it flew driectly overhead we could see it was carrying some prey in it's tallons.
A male Ring Ouzel. Best views I've had of one.
Black Guillemot on the sea at Holyhead. You can just see it's ridiculous red feet.
Doing a bit of cleaning.
A Herring Gull looking for some lunch. (Our lunch)
Waders coming in. A mix of Dunlin and Ringed Plover.
