Free as a bird!

I’m on holiday at home this week so I’m free to do pretty much as I wish.

This morning I decided that my day should start with a trip to RSPB Conwy, a lazy couple of miles from my house.

This time of year can be a mixed bag at Conwy. If you’re lucky you can “click” for something really good but the other more likely option is that you have to rely on the local resident birds to put on a show. Today started badly as I missed a Med Gull by minutes but thereafter, today was a good show!

A Little Egret by the coffee shop posed well from every angle, even adding some jumps and turns for good measure.

…. and I love House Martins. These were on a mud-gathering mission.


A resident Oystercatcher provided a rare change from monochrome.

but the day’s “Splash of Colour” award had to go to this Bullfinch
