Barry Docks and Sully

Mediterranean Gull (adult, winter plumage) late this afternoon on railings at Barry waterfront with 25+ Black-headed Gulls. A Grey Wagtail nearby, on rooftops initially then at water’s edge. Rock Pipits here, and later also at Bendrick Rock and Sully beach.

Great views of a male Sparrowhawk which perched a couple of times in between half-heartedly upsetting the local Goldfinches in the scrubby area behind the Vale’s recycling facility on Atlantic Trading Estate.

Two Mute Swans on the sea between Hayes Point and Bendrick Rock, 63 Canada Geese in flight over Sully beach heading towards Sully Moors/Cosmeston and at sunset a Curlew and 14 Ringed Plover heading up channel along Sully beach towards Sully Island.
