Rarity finders: American Robin on Bardsey Island
Rarity finders American Robin on Bardsey Island
Leaving the island for the mainland nearly cost warden Steve Stansfield dearly when an American Robin turned up. With gale warnings in place Steve takes us through the highs and lows of trying to get back on the island to see this ultra-rare American thrush.  log in log in

Bardsey Island
Bardsey Island
Bardsey, 2 miles off the Lleyn Peninsula in Gwynedd is perhaps one of our least-visited premier birding sites. As Steve Portugal points out, the island has a long tradition for attracting rarities, as well as good numbers of passage migrants and superb numbers of breeding birds.  log in log in

Bardsey Island
Bardsey Island
Warden Steve Stansfield takes us through the history books as he introduces us to one of our least-known bird observatories, recounting some of the birds that can be seen on the island through the spring, summer and autumn months. Steve will be writing regular articles for us as we watch the life of a bird observatory warden unfold throughout the year, along with details of any falls or rarities - given the mouthwatering list of rarities in his article we may not have long to wait!  log in log in
