Day out in wales

Headed to Rhiwderyn in the hope of seeing the Common Yellowthroat. Seemed quite a leage number despite the bird been a round for a while, the bird showed almost straight away sulking in the bottom of the edge but moving up and down quite regulary though vanishing for periods. Also around while waiting for flocks of Goldfinches, Buzzard, Flocks of Blue, Great Tit and 1 Coal Tit.

Singing Reed Bunting
Next headed to Cosmeston Lakes where had a nice walk round and had great views of Singing Reed Bunting before walking around the lake where a stunning Lesser Scaup out in the middle thanks to some local birder for pointing it out along with the Tufted Duck flock and singles of Pochard, Wigeon and Great Crested Grebe. Then heading back had close view of a Whooper Swan right by the vistor centre before it decided to fly off and join the rest of the Mute Swans good end to a great day.
