A birdy weekend

Image
No football this weekend so I took the chance to get out and about. Saturday Saw Bill and I head for Anglesey to twitch the Isabelline Wheatear there. This is one of my favourite places in Britain and the area around Cemlyn Bay has yielded some excellent birds over the years - Saturday was no exception. A splendid Issy bounded around the field along with four Northern Wheatears, two of which were of the Greenland form enabling good comparison.

Sunday's trip was a brief visit to Brockholes Quarry where there were two Black Terns hawking over No 1 pit along with the Black-necked Grebe that's been there for over a week now.
