Saved by the birds!

The Arete Welsh meet was based in Helyg and despite the Met Office promise of monsoon rains four more members joined me on Friday night. Saturday dawned as promised WET! The only hope being a possibility of bright spells in the afternoon. After numerous brews and mutterings of, “not going for a walk in this”, Nick the twitcher went outside armed with binoculars. Suddenly an excited cry of Redstart emanated from outside the hut, rousing twitchers and even climbers into action. What followed was a couple of hours ticking several more species of LBBs. Over lunch we decided to head for Anglesey – twitchers looking for Choughs and climbers dry rock. The result was a weather window of around four hours during which all parties achieved their goals.
