Coed-y-dinas and Dolydd Hafren
This morning an hour or so at Coed-y-dinas produced a Nuthatch,Great Spotted Woodpecker,15 Lapwing,2 Teal,10 Goosander,6 plus Tufted etc, and the ice is retreating.
In the afternoon Dolydd Hafren produced 1 Greensandpiper,20 plus Curlew,12 Goosander,Peregrine,Kestrel,2 Buzzard,4 Reed Bunting,8 Teal,Mute Swan,2 Little Grebe,and about 4.30 thousands of Starlings.
No Bittern was seen, but I left four fresh fish in front of first hide.
I make no excuses for putting a picture up of Brown Hare,but it was almost dark and the picture was taken at 1/20 second at f5.6 at 5000iso, Hand held NO!Bit noisy but is'nt it amazing what these digital things will do.I could just make out the Hare in the gloom.
