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

Wednesday, 11 September 2013


Its been a good few years since I last saw an osprey at Llandegfedd Reservoir. A quick morning visit with the specific objective of seeing a bird that's been present for the last couple of days didn't disappoint. As soon as I arrived to my chosen vantage point on the The Island the bird quickly appeared complete with fish, flying over Green Pool Bay then alighting in a tree just out of sight. Other birds of note included a single little egret, three tufted duck and 19 teal.

At Penyfan Pond this afternoon were singles of cormorant and tufted duck. Away from the pond was a spotted flycatcher that utilised some fencing for feeding along with a nearby redstart.
