Newport 7th May


May 9, 2023 , , ,

From Alastair and Jill Proud: Returning from coast walk towards evening 2 chough were feeding on golf
course, also  2 whimbrel and 2 Wood pigeons. Earlier in the day an
adult, probably male peregrine, had circled high over estuary before
heading towards Carn Ingli.  On the coast we encountered an old friend, a
colour ringed chough, now in his 13th year and looking as if he is
still breeding in same place as we recorded him first in 2013, although
he is now only sporting one of his original colour rings.  In addition a
bar-tailed godwit was seen on coastal rocks.
