Cwm Nash

Nice GBC trip down Cwm Nash this morning and up on to the west clifftop fields. Quite close and warmer than expected so yours truly got a bit overheated with too many layers!. 9 of us collectively saw 39 species. The wooded section of the Cwm was very quiet and only revealed a Goldcrest on the way back up. In the open valley at the bottom there were a few Chiffchaffs feeding, and several Blackcaps, Blackbirds, Song Thrush, 3 Bullfinches, Goldfinch and a pair of Stonechat and a few other common species. At the shore there were 3 Oystercatcher, 2 Rock Pipits and a Grey Wagtail and a bunch of Herring Gulls, a Black-headed and an adult Great Black-back. A nice find was a busy colony of Ivy Mining Bees by the path leading up the west side away from the stream. Most of us tackled the steep climb up to the west clifftop where we had a couple of Wheatear, Meadow Pipit, Buzzard and a lucky few had a couple of Chough. Nothing rare but a nice morning out. John Wilson. Thanks to Alan Rosney for keeping the list., which is here.
