Had a few hours at Pwll Penarth this morning and was horrified to see that the reserve has been cut back with only a few tiny areas left for the snipe and water rail to take cover so guess they will spend most of the time on the far side of the reserve where we cant see them from the hides.
From the second hide a Reed Bunting showed briefly.
Also from the second hide Goldcrest and Bullfinch were showing well but the light was not great
Also 5 snipe were visible but to far out to take anything other than a record shot 4 snipe in this photo, Hope they move to cover soon.
The Water Rail is quite happy in the open as it swam across in front of the first hide shame it never showed when Mark turned up.
And a quick visit from the Kingfisher was nice only got 2 photos of neither were any good but thought I would post anyway.
