Rob please don't read this.

I nipped down to WWT at Llanelli this afternoon primarily to look for the Lesser Yellowlegs but having missed the high tide I duly dipped on it but did pick up a Ruff on the estuary out of the British Steel Hide.
I then wandered over to the lake where the Whooper Swans are and there a Spoonbill put in an appearance with a couple of Black Tailed Godwits.
I then decided to walk over to the Welsh Water Hide, getting to the main centre I stooped to have a quick look at the feeders and lo and behold within minutes a female Lesser Spotted Woodpecker arrived on the peanut feeders and spent a couple of minutes there happily picking away.
On returning from the hide I spent 15 minutes at the feeders again watching a young fox eating the droppings underneath the feeders.
