Mute Swan Twitch !!!

I can't believe I just typed the words for the title of this post but they are true. Martin Bevan has just called me to say that he has just seen two swans on Abercwmboi Lake ( he did not have his binoculars so was not sure what species they were ). Nothing unusual you would think about that but the fact is that I have never seen a swan in the Cynon Valley and Martin has only ever seen one Mute Swan. Martin said that he thinks that the last record for Abercwmboi lake was over 50 years ago.

I rushed up to Abercwmboi and met Martin, we went down to the lake where we found the two Mutes not the Whoopers or Berwicks as hoped for. Record shot below.
Also below a shot of a Pied Wagtail from Kenfig on Sunday.


  1. Nice shot phil and the tyres cracking.Any chance you send a copie of photo.

  2. 2 MS on Cyfarthfa Park lake this morning, first for a long time. Other observations: never let Phil open his tripod in the TV room.
