Following an extended period in doors I managed to squeeze in a short visit to Ponthir Reservoir.
I must say the grassy banks around reservoir are very nice, but it's a shame they're cut too regularly otherwise they would be even better with Welsh Water picking up some biodiversity brownie points. Nonetheless theres always plenty of inverts on offer including this speckled wood. On the water were 19 tufted duck, singles of little grebe, coot and kingfisher. On return to the car a redstart was a bonus find.
