Choughs at South Stack

A family holiday on Anglesey wouldn't be complete without a trip to South Stack to look for Chough. We all enjoyed the climb of several hundred steps down and then up to the lighthouse. Stopping for a breather outside we were rewarded with good views of this bird which returned repeatedly to the same spot on the lighthouse wall, and gave plenty of opportunity to practice flight shots. Saw one or two more Chough, plus a few raven and many Manx Shearwater offshore, but otherwise fairly quiet for birds.
