Spotshank on the pools this morning, 3 or more green sands 1 common sand 1 greenshank and a shed load of snipe.


Pit 95 didn't appear on the map i had but i think its quite old anyway.Spotted a few cars parked up with various bird stickers on them so i knew i was in the right place.Walked through a nettle patch about half a mile long got stung about 300 times but soon found a clearing to start viewing.No sign at all for about 2 hours and was just about to head back when i had one last scan and got it.Very distant and the heat haze was terrible but still a tick.Also about 4-5 hobby's hunting over the pit all morning.

News came out of this little gem at the Gower this afternoon.Two of us headed straight down at 6pm after work,and after some marvelous directions over the phone we were guide straight in and could see it from the car.
We did get out of the car and had cracking views down to about 50 foot from a right little show off.
