My "exercise" yesterday morning took me on my electric bike to the disused reservoir apparently known as Llyn Mynydd Gorddu near Bontgoch. On it were two pairs of little grebe, a female tuftie, eight wigeon, and various moorhens (with one using a nest platform). A sparrowhawk flew low over the lake at one point. There was a pair of stonechat on the Bontgoch road nearby. On the pond/reservoir closer to Penrhyncoch were herring and lesser blackback gulls and a pair of tufties. There was a scattering of chiffchaffs around the area and countless buzzards and red kites.
