Cardiff Bay and Sully Island

On Sunday there were at least 600 Tufted Duck in total at Cosmeston (330+) and Cardiff Bay (270+). Other ducks in the Bay included:

  • Ring-necked Duck resting on a trapped log just south of the flyover
  • Female Goldeneye in the middle of the bay in very calm conditions
  • Teal (Wetland reserve), Goosander (4 near Watermark building, 1 drake downstream from Pont-y-Werin footbridge on the Ely) as well as a few Pochard scattered about.

On the walk home it was approaching high tide as I passed Sully Island where there were 20 Curlew, 39 Ringed Plover, 2 Grey Plover, 14 Turnstone, 4 Shelduck, 92 Oystercatcher and a Grey Heron
