I managed to slip in a a couple of mini birding sessions in whilst on a family long weekend break. South Stack was the first & managed drag friends and family along. As always this time of the year you don't know where to point the scope as there is some thing going on everywhere. Choughs displaying reasonably close the odd Puffin putting in an appearance as did Gannet plus all the regulars the stack is famous for. An hour was spent at the end of Holyhead Breakwater well worth the time spent 100s of Manx Shearwaters patrolling the bay and within a stones throw away. Gannet again were about as was Black Guillemot & Shag. One of my favourite reserves on the island is Cemlyn Bay I love the sound of hundreds of breeding turns. A talk to the wardens about the number present were around 300 Sandwich 60 Common & 40 Arctic, no Roseates had been seen for some time but luckily i stumbled upon one whilst there. Other birds around the reserve were Med Gull, Mergansers, Ringed Plovers, Bar Tailed Godwits ect. An enjoyable few hour squeezed in around the family
