Dwyran Anglesey N Wales
The first views of this bird were in flight as it came in and landed near the small pond . We then had excellent views of this adult purple heron as it fed along the edge of the pond. It was feeding well and caught at least 5 fish whilst we watched it. Viewed from the footpath which is about 200 metres away was plenty close enough with a bird this big.  
Called it at Llanfairfechan on the way home. At least 25 red throated divers still, 5 gannets feeding close in  and a dozen sandwich terns. Plenty of auks and great crested grebes also.
