Since my last post the Wales bird list has moved on to 95 and new species are becoming hard to find. Some good species were picked up after visiting a few nature reserves, like, Llangorse, Ynys Hir, Dinas, the riverside at Hay on Wye and another couple of Gilfach visits, as well as a couple of failed dragonfly visits to the upland peat bogs.
Difficult to find species like WATER RAIL, REDSHANK, GREAT BLACK BACKED GULL, LITTLE EGRET, OYSTERCATCHER, OSPREY, PEREGRINE, MARSH TIT, COMMON SANDPIPER and CETTIS WARBLER, (the latter find was a local rarity for Llangorse lakes!) have pushed the list to within 5 species of our target of 100.
A visit to Aberystwith either tomorrow or Monday, to try to find the Choughs and maybe a couple of sea birds will push our list tantalisingly near to our target if we are successful :-)
