Welcome to my Blog, I hope you enjoy it. I hope to share with you the wonderful wildlife that can be found here in Wales. I'm based in Neath Port Talbot and I make no apologies for flying the flag for this biodiverse county. But, of course, I won't be ignoring the other great areas further afield. Thanks for visiting and come back soon.

Greenshank at Penclacwydd WWT
I made my first ever visit to Penclacwydd WWT today! I've walked the millennium path a few times but, never actually entered the reserve. Having now experienced it I can't wait to go back. I spent my whole time in the British Steel hide and although there were never very large numbers of birds, there was a continual movement of birds to and from the scrape.
5 Greenshank (shown above) were showing on and off throughout the day. Other nice stuff were a fine drake Pintail, 3 Little Egret, 2 Black-tailed Godwit and 1 Great Spotted Woodpecker over the centre.
