Promoting observation, free range exploration, sense of place and citizen science, through the field notes of a naturalist.

When I grow up I want to provide cover for birders on a wind swept winters day.

This was the message shouted at me from margins of Garnlydan Reservoir this morning. This apparent disused structure lends itself well to a hide to help those birders who put in the effort making the long trek across the hillside to count winter gulls. All it needs is a bit of vision, committment and a small amount of funding - any takers?

The most interesting feature of reservoir however is the exposed tree stumps on the northern shoreline. Only visible during low water these stumps sit in peat at the waters edge hinting at their longevity.
