a long walk in the sun

A walk round Coed Cefn Fforest followed by Parc Taf Bargoed and Craig Fargoed today picked up a couple of new migrants - a total of 4 Redstarts and a Tree pipit. Good numbers of butterflies - 6 species in total, my first Bee-fly of the year and my first Odonata of the year - 2 large Red Damselfly's.

Meant to add - the first of this years Mallard broods took to Parc Taf Bargoed lake - mum with 12 shiny new ducklings


  1. Had my first Redstart of the year today near Rhayader, also saw the massed ranks of the Glamorgan Bird Club who had been successful with Ring Ouzel at Craig Cerrig Gleisiad.

  2. I thought phil would have put is Bee fly shot on.
