Aberthaw/Gileston

A bit of a damp GBC trip to the above this morning but 14 folk braved the weather, including a welcome overseas visitor, Syd Cannings, from Whitehorse, in the Yukon, visiting family in Cardiff. Just 40 species seen, the highlight [and surprise] of which was a Gannet sitting on the water just offshore in front of the power station. It flew a short distance, harrassed by Herring Gulls then settled again out by the large outlet structure, when it became hard to spot in the choppy water. We couldn’t find and Brents although one observer had a brief view of a singleton. There were c.100 Wigeon by the river mouth as the tide came in. A fox gave good viws as it walked up the grassy spoil tip.
