This morning I picked Dutch birder, ringer and all-roung good guy Fabian Meijer up from Liverpool airport along with his equally all-round good guy dad, Tammo. After a brief stop at base camp we headed off to Anglesey. First stop was a touristy one.
Next we headed to South Stack RSPB where we enjoyed the seabird colony and several Chough.
We continued the auk-fest at Holyhead Harbour where a Black Guillemot was fishing close to the road.
Next up was Cemlyn Bay where we added Arctic, Sandwich and Common Tern to the day list. There were at least three 'non-breeding plumage' terns in the colony, which would have been interesting to take a closer look at — but the heavens opened and we made a dash for the car.
We finished the day with some fish & chips and a brief look at some Manx Shearwaters off Point Lynas.
Fabian and Tammo enjoy their first Manx Shearwaters.
