Out of the many days I've spent in the year at Llandegfedd, I think I see these fellows at-least once in a year... they are so illusive! Just by chance I noticed this one drinking between the roots of a dead willow tree and with a bit of patience, and camouflage, it came out to enjoy the last bit of sun on what was the wettest day we've had for a couple weeks. I spent a good couple hours birding at Llandegfedd this evening and I can't help but have that autumn/winter feeling with Teal turning up all over the place and Gull numbers rising. I saw yet another Spotted Flycatcher today amongst a Tit flock and 7 Little Egrets feeding on the mud flats.
