gaynorsl said:Good pic of the Jackdaw looking smart Mike, there are many visitors to Moelfre so the birds get well fed. You were just up the road from me, should have called in for a brew with your family :-)
Thank you Gaynor, yes we love Moelfre and in particular Ann's Pantry.
The stream that runs along side down to the bay, and the house with the windmill in the garden, always make for pleasant viewing. I also like to view the ships at anchor across the bay, which I could imagine to be a storm haven when conditions get rough.
The jackdaw was on the path between the sharp bend on the main road and the path that follows the coast around the old lifeboat house to the current Lifeboat Shop.
I've a clear photo from the terrace just before that path looking over the bay and Carneddau to Snowdon, where you can clearly see the railway and footpath from Llanberis.
The photos of Moelfre from this visit are in my Flickr May 2019 Album, and the one of Snowdon viewed from Moelfre can be viewed clicking HERE.
Hopefully we'll be back up N Wales sometime during August, but nothing has has been finalised as yet.

Thank you Hazel.
A few of the same male kestrel yesterday below White Edge, Derbyshire. Quite odd as I approached in plain sight across the field opposite the Grouse Inn and took a snap every few steps. Got to within 20 feet or so and he still just sat there looking around. Still didn't move as I passed by and left.

& then she flew off with it, so maybe lucky babies.

lovely photos Hazel, what a mouthful that little sparrow has, I remember a couple of years ago one of our garden wrens catching a huge dragonfly.
Here's one of our Jays who must have got out of the grumpy side of the roost on Monday; chasing off another Jay
