Cog Moors and Pop Hill

Circular walk yesterday from Sully via Cog Moors and Pop Hill and a short stretch of the coast path produced 48 species in total. Two Blackcaps were singing near the water treatment works on Cog Moors and a Cetti’s Warbler was singing from scrub along a nearby water channel. Jay, Great Spotted Woodpecker and several Redwing were in trees along Green Lane, and two Green Woodpeckers were calling in the woods on Pop Hill. Greenfinch were singing at six locations on the walk, but there was just one singing Chaffinch, at The Oxhams on the south side of Dinas Powys.

Three Grey Heron and pairs of Teal, Buzzard and Linnet were on the moors. A Snipe flushed from Cadoxton River bank, and a Grey Wagtail was working its way upstream along the river.
