Great Orme season is underway!

The first visit of the year produced five lovely Golden Plover on the limestone pavements giving their mournful calls. Other birds on the headland included several Siskins over, in singles or pairs, 10+ Carrion Crows, 8 Magpie, 2 Chaffinch while 3 Meadow Pipit and 2 Skylark looked to be on territory. Offshore a single partial summer plumaged Great Northern Diver was off the west side and many Auks, Cormorants and Sags were spread out on the sea.
