The lone Shriker

A visit to Garwnant this morning before heading down to Swansea to coach saw little in the way of birds. The GGS was back on its favoured posts from previous years - south of the Visitors Center. Aside from that 2 Foxes and a small party of 10+ Goldcrests were the only other notable sightings.

My first hoverfly of the year -a Marmalade Fly, Episyrphus balteatus, decided to check me out while I was having a coffee break in Swansea around midday.

The day finished with a drive by twitch for the two Mute Swans at Cyfarthfa Lake - a Merthyr tick for me.
