Our first ‘Lockdown’, socially distanced, Kenfig Saturday walk was very successful. Eight folk came along, we went down to the pool, (not in the hide, too many folk) then across the dunes to the coast, where the view across the beach was stunning in the sunshine. 25 Gannet were seen over to the west of the Mumbles, by a couple of folk with telescopes. Everyone managed to see a Porpoise, there were at least three.
Highlights include – a fairly close Marsh Harrier, two Sparrowhawks, good views of a Kestrel, a Great Spotted Woodpecker, and a Snipe.
