Saturday was a bit of a washout but did manage to get up to Ynysyfro Reservoir.Bottom pond was still covered with ice and the top pond was three quarters covered with nothing of interest here.Sunday was spent walking the foreshore at Collister Pill.Good numbers of the usual duck and waders.We did spy a female tufted duck out on the estuary.A walk along fisherman's lane i think it was called and back to the van produced a few skylark hiding in a field.Quite a few flew over throughout the Morning.The Twitch was on then for a Smew At Goldcliff Pools.Twenty Minutes later and couple of stops on the way we were watching it on the back Pool.Then with Smew firmly on my Gwent List i could stand down and relax.Great Northern Diver and Mandarin showed distantly in the afternoon at Llandegfedd.
