Weekend Birds

I was away this weekend on a school vist to France. A few reports from the Great Orme this weekend with saturday certainly being the most productive day. At least ten Spotted Flycatchers were dotted around the place as well as two Whinchat. Paul Manchester had a female Redstart and a male was also reported.
On Friday Julian Wheldrake had the follwoing on the Little Orme - Blackcap 2, Whitethroat, Willow warbler 2, chiffchaff, Rock pipit 2, Sparrowhawk, Fem kestrel, Buzzard 2, Raven 9, Chough, Sandwich tern 7
He also reported the following but in his own words was probably underestimating:-
Fulmar nests 7, Kittiwake nests (Angel Bay) 29, Cormorant nests 63.
Also had a fox (vixen) which froze when it saw me instead of running off so I assume it had young around. Butterflies seen were common blue, orange tip, meadow brown, green veined white, large white and common tortoiseshell. A good number of early purple orchids also on show along winding track down from top quarry.
