Porthmadog Holiday Day 3

A long bus ride today to Barmouth - 1 hour - good value for money, though, £5.85 each, return.

The fare would have been zilch, for me (but not Sue) in England using my bus pass. Not valid in Wales, alas!!

Not much birding time today.

Oystercatcher, 2 Cormorant, Large Gulls, and some well camouflaged Dunlin among the rocks.

Late evening, I had a walk around the campsite.

Green Woodpecker, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Goldcrest,My first calling Cuckoo - heard but not seen.

A Buzzard being mobbed by Herring Gulls. The Buzzard dived headlong to avoid the Gulls.

An interesting couple of warblers - probably Willow Warbler, but one looked to have a very yellow eye stripe.

The bird had a deep single 'chaff' call repeated many times as it flitted about in the late evening light.
No other calls heard from the birds.

Large Gulls - Probably Lesser Black Backed Gulls
