Reported on 21st by Jeny Heard, an Egyptian Goose was still present today at Llyn Coed-y-Dinas, amongst 900-1000 Canada geese, which were uneasy due to an Otter patrolling at the far end of the lake. The adult and juvenile Great Crested Grebe remain, together with 20 Wigeon, 35 Teal and 20 Tufted Ducks. The Great White Egret can disappear from view into the reedbeds for many minutes, before raising its head again.

A few pics from the garden these past few days using my study as a hide, camera on monopod, comfy chair, cup of tea etc etc. Tree Sparrow has been a real pain in the proverbial to get on camera as not in all the time and tricky to keep track of with 80+ House Sparrow blitzing the feeders

Yellow Wagtail is a scarce visitor to Montgomeryshire, preferring damp meadows and rough cattle or sheep pasture. Thanks to Andy Knight for the pic (from Bacheldre, near Churchstoke). He says, "there were at least two pairs here this summer, the last sighting as late as mid Oct. We’ve only lived here three summers, and they’ve been present every year. They regularly frequent the garden and roof. Afraid I haven’t got any smart equipment!" Never mind Andy, it's a great record shot.

This morning the Grey Heron at Llyn Coed-y-Dinas was outnumbered by 2 Little Egrets and 2 Great White Egrets. The adult Great Crested Grebe is still feeding the only youngster reared this year, and popped up with a perch close to me. The youngster was more interested in making a splash!
