Birding In And Around Barmouth And Video Footage Of The Beautiful Mawddach Estuary. Highlights: Dipper, Eider, Garden Warbler, Pied Flycatcher, Redstart, Wood Warbler.

My final holiday-related post is in reference to the birds that I saw while in the Barmouth area. Apart from a visit to Coed Garth Gell, I didn’t make a specific journey anywhere just to get a tick.

I kept an ongoing list during the week on my phone, so for ease they are listed in alphabetical order rather than taxonomic.

Mobile phones are much more than just something to make and receive calls on and one of many uses of mine is that I make notes on there as well. I used to have a notebook that accompanied my birding sessions, now it’s just my phone.

Talking of Coed Garth Gell, the lead image is a wood warbler that my wife, Debby, took. I did a specific blog entry on that visit and you can view it here.
