A Windy Visit to Red Wharf Bay

Again the wind played havoc with our sea fishing plans and to make matters worse it was one of the few days of ‘proper’ rain we had during our stay on Anglesey so we went for a drive around the eastern side of the island, mainly the Llanddona / Red Wharf Bay area to see what we could see.

After a while we moved ‘up’ the coast a bit to the section of the bay nearest to Pentraeth where I got out and had a look around while Wendy watched me (and read) from within the car as I battled the elements.

It took me a while to notice them but I spotted a few Little Egrets searching for food in the small river near the car park so I quickly grabbed the camera and after much swearing and watching the little buggers fly away from me, managed to get a reasonable photo.

It was only after getting back into the car, a little windswept to say the least, that I noticed the Egrets were all down the river as it meandered it’s way toward the sea through the beach.

Typical.

Anglesey – it never ceases to amaze you with it’s wildlife.
