Highlights: A stunning male Citrine Wagtail was a great find at Llwyn-on Reservoir (27th). A Red-rumped Swallow spent a few hours at Kenfig Saltmarsh, but apparently moved on when a Merlin showed up (5th). Two Bonaparte’s Gulls graced Cardiff Bay – a brief adult (22nd) and a lingering second calendar-year (from 25th). Also at Cardiff Bay, a Golden Oriole was reportedly rescued and taken into care (29th), sadly succumbing. At Kenfig Pool both Whooper Swan (3rd), and Cattle Egret (19th) were fleeting visitors, with up to four Garganey recorded. A Great White Egret was at East Aberthaw (16th). Two Avocets were noted at Ogmore Estuary (6th). Other Sites: Ospreys were observed at Llwyn-on Reservoir, Cwm Cadlan, Southerndown, Bridgend and Kenfig. A male Hen Harrier transited over Cosmeston. A Merlin was at Nash Point. A Hobby was seen over Broadlands, Bridgend. Several Little Ringed Plovers, a Spotted Redshank and a Greenshank were at Ogmore Estuary. Rumney Great Wharf held Greenshank and Green Sandpiper. A maximum of four Little Gulls was at Cardiff Bay. Wintering Water Pipits were still present early in the month at Ogmore Estuary and Rumney Great Wharf. Ring Ouzels turned up at Mynydd Bach (two) and Rudry Common. Migrant Pied Flycatcher and Wood Warbler were both noted at Kenfig.
