Despite the Spring like weather a Valentines Day birding visit to Llandegfedd Reservoir produced nothing to get excited about. With no birds to watch I turned my attention to the significant and unseasonal LR draw down and the variety of washed up detritus - its amazing what can be found! This fire bucket thereby became a suitable prop for the seasons first frog. I had, rather optimistically maybe, hoped for the odd early ground beetle but any amount of stone turning failed to reveal any invertebrates. Birds on offer included, a single male goldeneye and about 30 lapwing. Roll on the Spring!
