Fourteen participants on this morning’s GBC monthly walk at Kenfig NNR. It was breezy along the East Pool shore, though a lot calmer in the sheltered areas near the South Pool hide. In total 43 species were heard or seen including 4 Chiffchaff (3 singing) and at least 6 Sand Martin.
Wildfowl numbers have fallen but Scaup (2m, 1f), Goldeneye, Gadwall, Shoveler, Tufted, Mallard, Great Crested Grebe, Grey Heron and Cormorant were present.
