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.

Lesser Scaup on Eglwys
In very depressing conditions at eglwys today, the quality of species present brightened things up a good deal. Duck numbers fluctuate quite a lot at Eglwys from day to day. The female Lesser Scaup was definitely present last week on the 16th and 17th but, I'm not sure if it was seen there after those dates, even though it was looked for. Today she was showing quite well, albeit distantly, and feeding frantically.
The slavonian Grebe was still present, as were 2 drake Scaup. All these birds were viewed from the locked gate near reedy bay.
