Conwy RSPB – Autumn Birds

I had a relaxing hour at Conwy this morning in fantastic autumn light. As usual, the place looks quiet, bird-wise, until you stay still for a while.

I counted 28 Snipe around, all busy probing the mud as they do.IMG_5508

Gadwall are such pretty ducks. A group of 5 birds were aimlessly patrolling the pool.IMG_5728

Bright sunlight + Lapwings = gorgeous colours!IMG_5581

The Little Egrets were having their disputes, as they do, bickering over something that matters to them but is invisible to us humans.IMG_5627IMG_5607A lone Greenshank and the long-staying Little Stint were also around but too far away for photography.
