So we went to Anglessey.
My Baedekar has this to say on Anglessey
"The Island of Anglessey ('Isle of the English') or Mona (Mon, deriviation uncertain), which is about 300 sq miles in extent and few picturesque features beyond Beaumaris Castle , the walk along the Menai strait, Penmon Priory , Red Wharf Bay, and the island of Holyhead. It contains, however, numerous cromlechs, menhirs, and other antiquities"
Anyway we nipped along to Holyhead and the RSPB reserve of South Stack. We soon found Guillemot, Razorbills, Kittiwakes and Fulmar. A stroll on through up 4 Puffins and a Gannet. We were told there were Choughs about.
Trish said it would be nice to see a Chough..... I then heard what I thought was a Chough and bingo it was !! (I had heard one earlier but hadn't seen it and its been years since I had heard one!). Literally as Trish said it there it was with its bright orange/red beak and legs! As we packed the car a Peregrine flew over!!
Lunch was two slices of cake shared :)
a stroll around the house alas the wonderful Whistler can't be photographed :(
So we had a cuppa (and more cake!) and went back to Beddgelert and strolled another way (seeing Spotted Flycatcher and hearing Willow Warbler).
