Boverton to coast along course of River Colhugh(mostly)

3 female Blackcaps (just fledged), Willow Warbler singing behind Ysgol y Ddraig, 2 Grey Wagtails under bridge at Llantwit. (Yesterday at high tide a seal swimming up the channel about a quarter of a mile offshore.)

    Andrew, all recently fledged Blackcaps look like the female. I believe the darker feathers of the male’s cap appear during the first winter (I haven’t checked that). The seal must have been a surprise?

      Dear Paul, thanks very much for your help with the Blackcaps-I did have a small voice of doubt in my head at the time so had intended to check up on that so now I know thanks. Yes first seal we’ve seen at Llantwit but not sure how unusual it is.There were no surfers there at the time.Best wishes Andrew
