A morning trip to Cwm Park Darran in drizzle produced the juv Long Tailed Duck that had been present for a few days. It was within 25 yards of me at times, but was typically underwater too much of the time to allow digiscoping or even digibinning, so the best I could manage is a dot without optical aids.
Siskins, Redpoll, Crossbills, Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Buzzard and a distant Red Kite also present.
After lunch, Gill was happy to come to Nash Point to look for the obliging Snow Bunting that had recently been reported.
It certainly wasn't bothered by our presence, and Glyn Roberts and Rob Gaze joined us for excellent views. The bird seemed to be feeding well, and the lady in the refreshment hut reckons it's been there for a couple of weeks, so not as long as their unappetising Welsh Cakes!
