Not sure but at least I managed to get them on camera!!
Golden Eye female, my first hurray
the male this time
Can anyone id?
I liked the Lapwing in the foreground
and in the background below
This was the Alaw estuary where we walked along the beach and then around the fields, this river leads up to the reservoire where I used to take my hubby to fish years ago, the biggest lake here on Anglesey.
We couldn't have chosen a nicer day, walking in sunshine all the way, little muddy in the fields but among wildlife trust people who were so knowledgeable, fabulous.
Lot to learn
That looked lovely Gaynor :o) I think they are probably Canada Geese, and both your Goldeneye are male (don't think female has white patch).. the other flying flock I'm afraid I can't make out. Thanks for sharing your lovely sunny trip :o)
EDIT: Having a 2nd look, the pic with the lapwings in the foreground has a couple of Brent Geese to the left...so it may be a flock of them flying.... also....I'm rubbish at ID's

In reply to PimperneBloke:
Lovely photos Gaynor and a lovely day, and well done on your first golden eye.
I have to confess, its not a part of the island I've frequented, apart from driving past, I really must spend more time around the island as a whole, there are many fantastic places waiting to be visited.
