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.

Grey Plovers at Crymlyn Burrows
The shingle ridge at the Western end of Crymlyn Burrows is a very important roosting area for waders during big high tides. Today there were 18 Grey Plover which represents my best count of this species at this site. Also roosting here were 88 Ringed Plover, 39 Sanderling and 149 Dunlin. Out at sea there were very few Great Crested Grebe off Crymlyn Burrows with only 8 noted but, there was 1 Red-throated Diver fishing offshore and 4 Kittiwake in with some Black-headed Gulls and Common Gulls further out.
