Day Trip to Kenfig Pool

Sunday Morning Phil, Martin and myself went to Kenfig for a walk and also did Sker. At Sker Farm  after a bit of of searching found the Little Owl in the old barn under the apex of the roof. At Sker there was lots of Curlew and Oystercatcher, a juv Kittiwake was the only thing of interest passing out at sea and on the beach were a small flock of Sanderling.  We saw a couple butterflies including three different blues and this Holly and Small Blue were a great bonus for me for the day. We saw loads of Gatekeepers it seemed every bush had one on it. We also found some more Sulphur Beetles which were new for Martin.

I thought this was a old bud of a flower but on looking closer could see it was a clump of Small Tortoieshell Caterpillars .

The boys chilling before walking back.
