Started the day by checking for Waxwings on the Rowan tree but only Blue Tit making the most of them so went to Pwll Penarth again.
Glad I did as the Water Rail was more than happy swimming and walking around just under the Sandmartin bank.
Never seen a Water Rail so happy in the open before even the sound of the camera was not spooking it.
There are now 6 Snipe visible.
From Pwll Penarth to Dolydd Hafren 2 Peregrine and a Sparrow Hawk kept all the small birds hidden but did manage to get a few shots of the Long Tailed Tit.
Finally went up to Marks to see if I could get the Sparrow Hawk and Great Spotted Woodpecker, Set the hide up and with in 5 minutes the sparrow hawk made its first appearance of 3 which produced no photos, Woodpecker showed briefly and missed that too.
The Coal Tit was my main focus then as they just don't keep still but got a few shots so just got to sift through them and hope there are some good ones in there.
Sadly not at home and so have edited these photo on a very slow laptop that does not have Lightroom
