First visit to this site as part of Willow Tit survey and was surprised by the number of species, which will obviously increase in the coming weeks. Species of note- 1 Willow Tit (close views of male calling), 1 Water Rail, 1 Little Grebe, 20+ Coot, 6 Moorhen, Mute swan (pair nest building), 3 pairs of Canada Goose, several Chiffchaff, Sparowhawk (f), 3 Buzzards and several pairs of Bullfinch
Usual common woodland species including Nuthatch and Treecreeper. Flyover Red Kite plus a pair of Buzzards. Woodcock flushed. This a lovely little reserve which I’ll certainly revisit. Perfect habitat for Willow Tit but no sightings on this occasion.
Single ( possible second) Willow Tit in area of scrub adjacent to former factory site to rear of handball court. Seen and heard at @ 7.45 am on a cold but clear morning. Recorded call was used.
sorry, another late one from Saturday 2nd sept ( I’ve just got to grips with logging into the sightings page 🤔) A lone Swift over Porth, the latest I can recall.
Late post from 13.00 Friday 1st sept , 3 Red kites just off A48 near Pyle. I was driving at the time but later checked on map and they would have been in the area near the quarry.
