Birding with kids ...
I had a day out with the kids today, but managed to squeeze a little birding in too. First stop was Cardiff Bay, and I was watching Non and Alec on the roundabout in the playground with one eye, while the other eye was gazing on a nice male black redstart. After filling up on lunch, Non dozed off in the back of the car as we headed off for Ponsticill Reservoir. Kevin Hughes was present but the only a handful of gulls had come in to roost. After about an hour's wait, with Non still asleep and Alec busy listening to The Killers, the Iceland gull appeared. That's the fifth lifer for me this year, should the Pembrokeshire diver pass its test. I left at around 4:20pm and have just read BirdGuides which shows another two birds showed just after I left.
