Menai and Thames 26/27th Jan

Off to see Leo at Bangor. We walked down to the little island by Menai Bridge, where the tiny church says it was built in 630AD by St Tysilio!

On the way we saw Buzzard and robin, then on the mud around the island Mallard, Oystercatcher, Teal, Redshank, Curlew. Grey Heron and Cormorant in flight. Then, in the water, a lone Razorbill and a group of Merganser.

Next day, on the Thames towpath, a Grey Wagtail.

Sad I didnt get to join Lydia at Barnes WWT on Tuesday as she saw Bittern on the ice, Sparrowhawk and female Smew.
