Back in Damp Wales

Part of the group of 25 Whooper Swans

We returned from France on Monday afternoon to horrendous wet and windy weather.  This morning was the first chance to get out.  Still windy but mild and some sunny periods were a huge improvement.  I dropped in at Dryslwyn Car Park and found it easy to see the 25 Whooper Swans which were close over the hedge at the edge of the flood.  There were also  500 Lapwings which is a big number for this site as well as a few Mute Swans, Greylag Geese and Canada Geese.  Two Goosanders also showed in the distance.

Tree Sparrow at Dryslwyn

I sat and waited a while and soon 3 Tree Sparrows appeared with a flock of about 30 Chaffinches.  On the way home 10 Wigeon were at Cilsan Bridge.  The River Tywi is running very high and flooding the meadows in places.
