Just a heads up that there’s a field trip next Thursday, 21st July to the old Llanilid opencast site SW of Llanharan. I cannot be there so Alan Rosney has kindly agreed to lead and be the contact to book a place. It is important that he will require a volunteer from those attending, to act as co-leader, in case of emergencies. The meeting arrangements are 9 a.m. at the southernost end of Enterprise Way, which runs S off the rounadabout by the Co-Op food store in Bryncae, on the A473. See the map below. The red arrow marks roughly where to meet. At the southern end Enterprise Way seems to change name on Google Maps but just keep straight on keeping the housing estate on your right, until you reach the end. Book with Alan via email only – firstname.lastname@example.org. The terrain should be dry but if it rains in the meantime, some paths can be muddy.
The main targets will be passage waders and hopefully Little Ringed Plover.
