June 10th-17th (Wales)

Jeanette and I spent last week,in a cottage on the edge of Llanllwni mountain.Apart from seeing most of the specialities (birds),a white bird first seen at some distance on the edge of the moor,turned out to be a leucistic Pied Wagtail.
We visited Llangrannog several times,which is on the coast.

Red Kite and Cuckoo
I looked in on the Lapwing chicks at Holborough on the 29th,and was pleased to see all four.A Cuckoo was seen and 2 Cetti`s Warblers and 1 Nightingale heard.The Nightingale was in scrub at the northern end of the marsh.This past week or more,good numbers of Red Kites have been reported in Kent.I photographed this bird passing over Snodland on the 30th.
