Gazing across along the sandbanks, something didn't quite belong...
Upon further inspection, a Terrapin perhaps? (I've informed the MWT of its presence).
Edit: Yellow Bellied Slider Turtle.
Leaving Penarth via the canal path, the Kingfisher made a welcome flypast along the water (still kicking myself for taking out of focus pictures of it!). A Red Kite was spotted hunting over the woodland by the canal, heading toward Aberbechan. And finally, a Jay.
