Lower boat pond - standard stuff.

Having the need to visit Ebbw Vale on a day off work I dropped into lower Beaufort Pond, Brynmawr for a quick wildfowl count. No great shakes with an expected range of bog standard birds. However a count of about 40 wigeon was by far the most I've counted at this site in close to twenty years. Other birds include 10 tufted duck, 2 pochard, 16 coot and 30 mallard.
