Decided this morning to do my WEBS a day early.
Arriving at a very wet Pwll Waun Cynon just after 7 o'clock I found the lake very difficult to observe has the vegetation was so overgrown, well over head height. This amounted to only three species being observed and 6 birds in total. 4 Moorhen, 1 Mallard and a Teal, poor pickings indeed.
I decided to go into the back field and see if I could get a better view but if anything it was worse. I walked over to the river to see if I could get Kingfisher or Dipper but with the water levels so high I was not expecting much and I was right no birds seen.
However whilst standing on the bank I noticed some movement to my right. On closer inspection there was a Hummingbird Hawkmoth feeding on some plants. I watched it for a few minutes then got the camera out. You guessed it, it decided it was camera shy. No photos but I was over the moon, it's been a few years since I saw one.
