An offset of impact that goes back into the landscape and local community? From 2nd homes, litter, dog fouling, car parks, route wear and upkeep etc. But also avoiding some of the issues to start with?

Can’t beat a elderberry-stained Garden Warbler. Felt autumnal up there, apart from it being 16°C!

Absolutely heartbreaking and infuriating. Where’s the accountability? They are crimes against the environment/world. Will there be leaders on trial in the future due to inaction now? Is there anyone who cares who isn’t silenced or outvoted due to greed? We need action not apathy.

My first turtle dove seen in Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 today after 35years birding! you could help future generations see them more frequently than I got to. It is an African-flyway species, not just for one country’s greed to wipe out.

A very close Common Scoter in heavy moult off Rhos Point at high tide. It was sat in with the Sandwich Terns and 3 Knot which looked odd. another Wexford ringed STern seen.

approximately; orange-aug / sep, purple- oct, red- nov, light blue- dec-jan, white / green- feb-may. Two dots per day and three weeks around autumn and the spring equinox are removed. Couple of anomalies but very interesting data.

Amazing feedback from Tommy Järås of a yellow M6X seen at Rhos Point 21/08/20 which was colour ringed this year but metal ringed 25/06/05 on Nidingen, Sweden, where it had been geo-tagged (see map for movements)

A Scolt Head (Norfolk) Sandwich Tern currently on the N Wales coast at Rhos showing the importance of Liverpool Bay, and roosting sites, as a stop over for birds from all directions.

A drone flying off Rhos Point this eve repeated flushed all the roosting birds. Isn’t there a law to prevent this?
