Highlights: A Blue-headed Wagtail was briefly along the east pool shore at Kenfig (10th ). Also there, an unseasonal Great Northern Diver off Sker and 22 Black-tailed Godwits at the pool. A Black Tern called in at Ogmore Estuary, early in the month. An Arctic Skua was off Lavernock. A very unusual local record concerned a pair of Hawfinches breeding successfully at Norton Church, Bridgend. The male of the pair was ringed as an adult near Parkend, Forest of Dean, on 11/04/2017.
