19th May 2021 – Anglesey

We started the day with a visit to another RSPB reserve at Cors Ddyga (also known as Malltraeth Marsh). For our walk around the reserve the weather was very dismal and it was difficult to photograph. However, we did get good views of lapwing displaying. There were also greylag geese, we heard lots of warblers and I saw my first swift of the year.

Fortunately the weather improved greatly and we had a splendid lunch on the terrace of the Oystercatcher at Rhosneigr in a beautiful setting in the dunes.

To walk off our lunch we had a walk along the pathway which runs between the Malltraeth Estuary and a lagoon where we saw sedge warblers and linnets.

On the way back we stopped again to photograph the amazingly photogenic Menai Straight.
