Elegant


As mentioned in my previous posting the muddy margins of Llandgefedd Reservoir are ideal for passage waders etc. at the moment. August is always good for little erget at this site and there were at least four birds on offer yesterday feeding close to the waters edge. Five oystercatcher were something of a surprise, supported by singles of common and green sandpiper and ringed plover. Other notable birds included a reed warbler, kingfisher, two little grebe, at least two great black backed gull, and the black swan continues to hang around closely associating with a pair of mutes. It was interesting to note that almost all of the Canada geese left due south at about 7pm suggesting that they roost elsewhere.

The liverwort Ricca cavernosa was plentiful around Green Pool bay.
