You nominated the breeding Savi’s Warblers at Cors Ddyga your Wales Bird of the Year in 2019

Your nominations clearly showed that WOS members are more than a collection of twitchers and rarity chasers! Whilst WBRC members were divided between Orphean Warbler (2nd Welsh record), Myrtle Warbler (3rd Welsh record), Buff Bellied Pipit (1st Welsh record) the most  nominations came in for Savi’s Warbler first breeding success in Wales at Cors Ddyga.

Multiple nominations also came for Alpine Swift, including one seen unexpectedly through the kitchen window whilst the observer was washing up and other favourites included the Llyn Brenig Great Grey Shrike, the first inland record of Cetti’s Warbler in north-east Wales, found in a mistnet at Rhydymwyn, Dotterel on the Great Orme, Parrot Crossbill and Yellow-browed Warbler.

It’s just been a bit of light-hearted fun, but thanks to all members who responded with their stories and nominations.
