Generally a fairly quiet month, compared with the mega-rarities recorded in other parts of the UK with the highlight being a warbler at Rhyl Brickworks from 11th to 13th, initially identified as a Hume’s Leaf Warbler on its call, but later ‘downgraded’ to a Yellow-Browed Warbler. For some the jury is still out!
