Another quick update from Wales.
With the weather turning wet and windy today, we took drive around the reservoirs at Elan this morning, picking up some interesting species as we slowly made our way around the mountain roads, species such as WHINCHAT, WHEATEAR, SNIPE, SANDMARTIN, REDSTART, PIED and SPOTTED FLYCATCHERS were all observed.
This afternoon, the skies cleared, so a return to the Gilfach Nature Reserve was decided upon, one of our favoured reserves :-) The target species today was DIPPER, which we found a pair of feeding a nest full of young, which enabled some photo's to be taken. I'll post one for now, as the computer i'm working on is rubbish for blogging and editing photo's!
The wales bird species list creeps along to 69, the target being 100 :-)
