Beautiful Welsh Birds

April 3, 2017

During our Wild Wales walkabouts this spring and fall we will be looking out for these three birdies. The Meadow Pipit who returns each year to Wales to nest on lowland heaths and salt marshes from its winter home in southern Europe and North Africa. The Stone Chat, black capped returns from Spain each year to raise its young and nest in gorse and lowland heaths. The larger than a robin Wheatear (black eye stripe) returns each year from North Africa to build a nest in a hole in the wall or a burrow in an upland moor. They feed mostly on insects and some berries and lay between 5-6 pale blue eggs.
