The two black necked grebe found at Cosmeston Lakes, Penarth within the last week have relocated to Rhaslas Pond on Gelligar Common between Merthyr and Tredegar. The two birds were very confiding and at one point entered into some characteristic grebe type display. Given this pond is just outside of the Gwent recording area fingers crossed their next move will be into county, maybe Bryn Bach Park or Garnlydan Reservoir.
On my return I called into Bryn Bach Park where Canada goose out numbered fisherman by at least three to one. Two birds were also carrying rings.
