A young Heron was hit a glancing blow by a car on the bypass as I returned to Welshpool, but it managed to fly on, and I missed it, though left a bit of rubber on the road!

L Cyd Ducklings
Nice to meet Al Parott in the hide this afternoon, and fortunate because he agreed that we were looking at 2 Shelducklings, no more than a week old foraging on their own. An adult Shelduck slept on one of the islands, apparently oblivious to their presence. As far as I know this is the first recorded breeding of Shelduck at L. Cyd. The Spoonbill is still present, but keeps as far away from the hide as he can when I'm there! Up to 23 Mute Swans in the last few days, including Blue Darvic numbers 7FXA, 7FUJ, and 7HAU. Perhaps Tony Cross can let us have some info. on them?
