Both usually fairly straightforward around Holyhead early April. Time spent scanning the harbour (scope strongly recommended) should get the former, latter around South Stack.

They are around, but the whole Fairburn/Swillington collection of reserves has a large footprint, comprising a lot of habitats, so you'd probably need to know exactly where to look. The only time...

New Swillington Ings on the journey up or down may give you Black-necked Grebe, although by June they can be rather secretive and far from easy to see, particularly on a short stop off.

I'm in the Yellow-olive camp. Head looks too clean a grey, without enough greenish in the ear coverts, Bill looks too strong and greater coverts too broadly fringed for Paltry to my eyes.
