Osprey tops off fine morning

*Evening update - Wheatear numbers rose from 7-8 pre 8am to an impressive 35+ birds later in the morning. This evening 2 Swifts were near the Little Orme.
There were a lot of birds up the Great Orme this morning with many birds arriving an hour after first light. Willow Warblers were bird of the day with 30+ birds on the limestones alone. A single female type Common Redstart was in the gorse at the north end, while Blackcap, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Whitethroat were in the Hawthorns along the wall.
The cemetery was also full of Willow Warblers, with just one Garden warbler the only 'different' bird (per A.Davies and P.Alderson).
Later on, a fine Osprey flew over Llanudno Town Centre and Craig y Don causing every gull in town to rise to the air and make a racket.
