Todays shower dodging excursion to Llandegfedd Reservoir turned up a fresh herring gull wing found amongst grassland on The Island. How did it get there? I suppose it was carried there by some mammalian predator. On the bird front dozens of paired great crested grebe, 40 Canada goose, 25 medaow pipit and a male reed bunting. Otherwise wild daffodils were showing well and six palmate newt under a rotting log were a bonus.
