Ynyshir and Glandwr

A nice hour in the Ynys Feurig hide yesterday morning.  Numerous Wigeon and Teal, good numbers of Curlew and Redshank, around 200 Lapwing, two pairs of Shoveler, two Little Egrets and the ever present Canada Geese. There was also a solitary Barnacle Goose feeding at the far end.
Later at Glandwr pool a ringtail Hen Harrier was circling. On the pool were nine Black-tailed Godwits, seven Redshank and a year list bird for me, a Green Sandpiper.
