Kenfig Pool this morning – Swift arrivals

A pleasant morning at Kenfig Pool, albeit chilly in the wind we saw approx. 40 species of birds. However we were pleased to see 7 Swift, 100 Sand Martin, 12 House Martin and 20+ Swallow over the pool. Two Lesser Whitethroat were singing, 1 near the reserve centre and 1 down by the south pool beach. Several Whitethroat were singing and displaying (pictured) and at least two Reed Warbler were singing deep in the south pool reed bed. It was too breezy for the few butterflies and moths zipping around that we saw and unable to identify. We also saw a few Buff-tailed Bumblebees.
