Sunday Morning I thought I would go over to Cwm Cadlan and see if there was any winter thrushes up there. It was very quiet and only birds seen were a Mistle Thrush and a female Kestrel. I thought of plan B and decided to drop down to Garwnant and have a look if the Great Grey Shrike was back but had no luck,  even the reservoir was dead with just lots of anglers. Best seen were 1 Great Crested Grebe / 1 Little Grebe /1 Tufted Duck drake, 1 Moorhen and 7 Cormorants and also had a flock of  Fieldfare over and a Red Kite.

In the North felled area I found a nice patch of Match Stick Lichen growing on a old stone wall and yes took loads of shots and think I need help as I cannot pass it with out stopping to take photos

 Also in the forest was a nice patch of Stag Horn Fungus and I found about twenty different ones

I was sitting there with a coffee and 6 Toffee Doughnuts and thinking this is the life and this Wren just popped out from the grass .
I have passed this bridge so many times and thought I would have a look. It is a smart bridge and has a small waterfall behind it and I will have too go back for a longer look.
