WeBS news

Working Sunday so early WeBS:
  • Pontsticill reservoir Friday 17th with AK; adult winter plumage iceland in amongst c2000 herring gull. Bird also seen on thursday but it's not the same bird as seen on Peacocks roof on the 11th, which was a breeding plumage adult.
  • Rhaslas pool Saturday; torrential rain, did a lap and flushed a water pipit on west point, good view of white outer tail feathers as it flew a few yards to next patch of rush. Detoured so bird probably still present, also, WN22, TU16, GN10, PO1 & HG70.
  • Talybont & Pentwyn; both reservoirs had low numbers, high water levels and rough conditions not helping.
