Eight people turned out for the field trip at Pen Cwm and enjoyed a
walk in beautiful weather.
Our bird list was: cormorant, gannet, common
scoter, herring gull,
buzzard, curlew, wood pigeon, swallow, rock pipit, grey
wagtail, wren, dunnock, robin, stonechat, blackbird,
chiffchaff, whitethroat, garden warbler, goldcrest, great tit,
tit, magpie, jackdaw, crow, chough, linnet, and bullfinch.
good weather had brought out a few butterflies and the list was:
wood, small heath, common blue, ringlet, meadow brown and,
towards the end of
our walk, two fritillary butterflies which we
decided must be dark green
fritillary. We are grateful to Dai who was
our butterfly expert for this walk
and helped us a lot but
unfortunately he had left by the time we saw the
fritts. We also saw
silver Y moth and six spot burnet moth.
