Whooper check

Coming back from Carmarthen this lunch time we stopped off at Dryslwyn and found 15 Whooper Swans very close to the car park.  Only two young birds were with this flock.  Moving on to Cilsan Bridge we found another group of 11 Whoopers but with no youngsters.  It is a bit unusual for the flock to split but maybe they are beginning to think already about journeying north to Iceland  I would not if I were them. A pair of Goosanders were on the Tywi under the bridge.

Good news today is that Beryl had her second blood test and her condition is very, very, much better.  Her steroid dose has been reduced and she scores low at the next test the dosage will be further reduced.  She will have to keep up some steroids for a year to prevent the return of the condition.
