Spring Has Sprung.

A Visit to Boat Lane and Goldcliff Pools this morning produced a couple of spring migrants.
Three Wheatears behind platform 3 in the fields and chiffchaffs in nearly every bush. The farmer and a friend and 2 runaway dogs were behind the seawall by the hay bales.The dogs were running wild and flushed everything in sight.Happy Days.At Boat lane 1 Golden Plover flew in for a few seconds before departing to the east.

In the evening checked out the Gull roost at Llandegfedd Res,nothing much of interest in the roost.Found a better spot for viewing the roost where you can hide from the wind.Its just a little hut by the yacht club but you can view the res and the Gulls are a lot closer.Not as good as the pre roost from the fisherman's car park.Since the water levels risen the pre roost has disappeared.The only highlight was a Little Egret.
