Parc Tredelerch, Cors Crychydd Reen and RGW – 9th Dec 2020

We had a Covid restricted walk to these three locations in the east of Cardiff, with just 7 participants. We had a good session, recording 60 species, the highlight undoubtedly being a Short-eared Owl, which we weren’t expecting, that flushed from very close from the foreshore where the Reen meets the sea wall. It flew along the shore westwards and we later relocated it on the west flank of the Lamby Way landfill. Other highlights included a Peregrine sitting up on an electricity pylon, a Kestrel on the landfill site, Lamby Lake had loafing gulls, Tufted Duck and Great Crested Grebes. Little Grebes were on the reen, and a Black Redstart was seen on foreshore rocks on the Great Wharf. 160 Pintail near the R. Rhymney mouth was a good count, with about 30 Shoveler with them. Waders comprised Curlew, Redshank, Dunlin, Oystercatcher, Lapwing, and Knot. Click here for a pdf of the full list.
