Pwll Waun Cynon

Decided to get out and about quite early this morning and have a leisurely stroll around Pwll Waun Cynon.  The weather was quite misty with some very fine rain drops which made visibility not good at all, in fact could only see probably half way up the hills on either side.

I managed to get 20 species in just over an hour which included Blue Tit x 3, Great Tit x 2, Robin x 4, Carrion Crow x 2, Greylag Goose x 2, Wood Pigeon x 1, Coot x 3, Teal x 7, Mallard x 7, Song Thrush x 1, Herring Gull x 7 (flying up the valley, when walking back to Mountain Ash 6 flew down the valley), Little Grebe x 1, Wren x 2, Great Spotted Woodpecker x 2, Grey Heron x 1, Goldcrest x1, Blackbird x 1 and Long Tailed Tits x 4.

I also found these feathers behind the lake, any ideas.

This photo was taken earlier in the week and don't panic Martin it was not taken in the Cynon Valley, you haven't missed a year tick for the valley
