Wet Sunday

Wet day at Porthcawl, the sea was hard work and I could not see very far out. Best thing seen were two Fulmar, two Med Gulls, 1 Turnstone, 1 Oystercatcher, hundreds of Black Headed Gulls and this very smart Herring Gull with rings on both legs. I have been onto Dan who is finding out where he is from.

Stopped at Kenfig Pool, there were good numbers of ducks like Wigeon, Tufted, Mallard, Gadwall, Pochard and nice to see the female Pintail was still present but sadly no sight of the Scaup which was why I was there .
Forest Farm was pretty good and great to see Reed Bunting numbers starting to grow again. Loads of Bullfinch, this male looks like he got Bumble Foot and was very sad too see. The Kingfisher was on show staight away, the water rail showed well for a bit too also lots of common snipe.
