Bryngarw CP – 9th May

Decided on a change of scenery and drove to Bryngarw Country Park on a very dull day. It was a very pleasant circular walk, initially alongside the R. Garw, which was a raging torrent. A Dipper was resting obligingly close on a mossy tree that had fallen across the river and a Grey Wagtail showed briefly in the same area. An active Goldcrest had moss in its bill and looked as tho’ it was buiilding a nest behind some Ivy on a tree. There was plenty of common birdsong including many Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs. Wood Anemones and Greater Stitchwort were in flower. Whilst having a coffee outside the cafe, we were entertained by a tame Nuthatch, which had a nest in a hole in a nearby tree.
