At least 3 Firecrest were at Conwy RSPB from December 2019 to February 2020
I was lucky to photograph a couple over a few visits. Many, many hours stood in the same spot to get these little gems. Well worth it.
With the water frozen over at Burton, I was hoping to grab some pictures of Bearded Reedlings foraging at the edge of the reedbed. No such luck. However, a Water Vole was hiding in a pile of cut reeds and made a dash for it over the ice.
Then on to Talacre to look for Snow Bunting. A single, unbelievably confiding bird, was feeding along the strand line
For some reason, it’s been nearly 10 years since I last visited the Spinnies.
Kingfishers had been showing VERY well in front of the recently built Viley hide, however, today, they weren’t so photogenic. Pictures all from other hides
An early morning start
Lots of pictures . . . .
With some great weather over the last few weeks, and some amazing birds, RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands has been feeling a bit like the Meditteranean.
Spoonbill, Great Egret, Cattle Egret, Blask Tern, White-Winged Black Tern, Bearded Tit along with slightly more ‘normal’ Reed Warbler, Black-tailed Godwit, Little Grebe and Shoveler.
