16 participants went on a very hot, GBC field trip to the above this morning and early afternoon. We logged a total of 55 species which wasn’t bad considering. Highlights were 3 Tufties on the lake at Parc Tredelerch, Little Grebe with young in Cors Crychydd Reen, plus several Willow Warbler there and Reed Warbler, lots of Goldfinch, Greenfinch. On RGW we walked east – there were few waders – just a small flock of Redshank with a few Dunlin in flew past, some saw 2 Ringed Plover, and there were Lapwing and Curlew towards Sluice Farm. A Little Egret was sitting on the groyne posts and surprisingly, Trevor Fletcher found a Common Gull in amongst the lines of Black-headed Gulls on the many posts. A Buzzard was patrolling Lamby Tip, and a Kestrel caught and ate prey from a post by RGW. Gareth ‘the tax ret’d’ Jenkins had a fly-by Whimbrel. Leps highlights were 2 Wall Butterflies and 2 Clouded Yellows.
