I pressed on and parked near the entrance to the boardwalk in Dinefwr Park. Immediately I was aware of a pair of Ravens "kronking" loudly overhead and then 3 splendid Red Kites soared overhead. I walked on through the boardwalk but found little of interest until I almost reached the mill pond. A pair of Green Woodpeckers appeared and called noisily. This species is becoming uncommon in this part of Wales.
|Great White Egret|
I walked round to the hide in Castle Woods and scanned Dinefwr Ponds. Immediately I picked up a Great White Egret standing motionless by the furthest pool. I know one of this species was seen here before Christmas but this is the first time I have seen this increasing species here. Sadly it was too far away for a photograph. There were also 110 Wigeon, 40 Mallard, 40 Teal, 11 Gadwall, 2 Shoveler, Pintail and 44 Coot. On my way back home a Sparrowhawk dashed across the road at Peny Banc.
