Redshank don’t often stop in Sully Bay (just a few records annually) but two were resting at the water’s edge in calm conditions yesterday morning. Five Canada Geese flew east along the coast before heading inland towards Sully Moors or Cosmeston. A Great Spotted Woodpecker was drumming in trees near Beechwood College and a Goldcrest was singing and Bullfinches feeding along Hayes Road.
Cetti’s Warblers seem well-established on Sully Moors. Three were singing there yesterday including, for the first time for me, one north of the Barry/Dinas Powys road. Other sightings on the moors included singles of Fieldfare and Redwing and two singing Skylarks.
