No Ring neck!

Promise of calm and sun drew us to Blaenmelindwr...EMPTY! Apart from a Heron and Little Grebe-just our luck as the lake was like a mirror. Tried Pendam -nogo-such is birding!
Off to Aber and no Redstart on the college-at least we saw 20+ Turnstones under the pier and another Heron out on the rocks.A lovely stroll round however and finally, a spot of luck on the end of the old stone pier : a solitary Purple Sandpiper ; the first one that has deigned to pose for me this winter.

On the way home in Cwmystwyth, 100+ Fieldfares at Tyllwyd farm with Starlings.
