Bargoed & Cefn Gelligaer

11 hardy souls faced the all day drizzle and had a long walk around the NW Bargoed area including Cefn Gelligaer, thanks to Club member Lee Taswell showing us round his local patch. Despite the weather we saw 42 species, although Cuckoo was only heard. Highlights included at least 3 Common Redstart including a juv bird, 2 male Whinchats, 3 Red Kite, Tree Pipits, a Curlew display flighting, lots of Skylarks, Green Woodpecker and 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers, and quite a few young birds including Stonechat, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Robin. A fly by flock of 4 Stock Dove were also noted. Many thanks to Lee. Full list will be added to the GBC trip lists page shortly.
