River Taff walk, Cardiff

The only Goosanders seen between Llandaff and the City Centre were a M-F pair downstream of the Millennium Footbridge. A Chiffchaff was seen calling near the (closed) Bute Park café.

At the Pontcanna Stables, there was noisy work being done on the road and therefore much disturbance of any birds that were in the area. I managed to count 15 Redwing there. Likely more on a quieter day.

A Great Spotted Woodpecker was drumming repeatedly near the river.

At least 110 Carrion Crows were coming to bread on Pontcanna Fields.

Pretty much the usual common suspects apart from the above. Very few Long-tailed Tits were seen compared to the numbers usually seen at this time of year, and the only concentration of gulls was c35 BHG above Llandaff Weir.
