Bontgoch / Salem

 Red kite roost Tuesday - a good count of 30 birds.

Yesterday - Llyn Mynydd Gorddu : the whooper swans have moved on but there were 26 wigeon, 2 teal and 2 mallard.
On a tiny farm pond about a mile SE of Bontgoch were 6 teal and a moorhen.

At Salem, a large flock of woodpigeons (200?) some of which may have been stockdoves. Also a flock of redwing (80?) with at least one fieldfare and a large number of blackbirds. A woodpecker was warming up nearby.
