Ynyslas area

Many thanks to Roy Bamford for the detailed description of where to find the snipe. I went late afternoon today and counted a total of 17 feeding and roosting, a very enjoyable sight. In the background a large flock of golden plover kept going into the air and across the road from the snipe field I had a flock of at least 30 field fare with a couple of redwing. I also would like to mention that a green sandpiper has been frequenting a field east of the Ynys Tachwedd (Aberystwyth Storage) track at least since the beginning of December.
