Sighting location: Glasbury - Fford Ffawr. Sighting date: 13/03/17
WeBS count today: best undoubtedly the herd of 35 Curlew (most I have seen here in 4years). Then 14 Canada, 2 Cormorant, 4 Goosander, 3 Grey Heron, 15 Lapwing, 24 Mallard,2 Mute Swan, 4 Oystercatcher, 2 Red Kite. Also Chiffchaff singing and pair of Reed Bunting. Heron and duck count possibly a little low as curtailed route (no futher than wheat field) as didnt want to disturb the feeding Curlew - Red Kite already put them up twice before they resettled in same spot.
