Kenfig NNR

Good to welcome some new folk on our Kenfig monthly walk this morning [it was actually Saturday {16th} – sorry to be picky! John W].

We went down to Sker to find the Long-Tailed Duck on the flood, then moved east along the coast to the edge of the Royal Porthcawl golf course where we located the juvenile Red-backed Shrike. (and lots of other friends!)

Other highlights were, -2 Sparrow Hawk, 30+ Lapwing,  Common and Mediterranean Gull,  50+ Woodpigeon flying over,  4 Raven, a Sanderling, and a Redwing.
