Pwll y waun & zig zag lane Porthcawl

While scanning the lake this morning there was a sudden cacophony as well over a hundred, mostly Black Headed Gulls with several Herring Gulls screamed and whirled above. The reason was what looked very much like a Goshawk, broad winged and long tailed, but it’s sheer size was what was noticeable, much bigger than the 2 brave Carrion Crows that escorted it as it flew back inland. I’ve seen them several times in the hills and forests in central Glamorgan but wasn’t expected one so near the coast in open countryside. Without doubt the hundreds of Woodpigeon in the area are a big attraction.
