Rhaslas pond: hunting for mobile phone this am flushed a female shelduck from south east corner and just about managed a record shot. 1st record for Rhaslas but I've had a pair on passage at the Upper Neuadd in April 2012.


  1. Hi MIKE ,Which way did it fly.

  2. Hi Martin, it went off south then it appeared to change its mind, possibly due to fog/mist and circled back towards north end of pond. I had the impression it wanted to sit the fog out but lost it over the tip to the north. They had 2 at Llangorse a few days ago that arrived from the north, I suspect they are moving south for the winter, maybe the bay.
