Rhaslas Pond

Juv Long-billed Dowitcher still showing down to a few feet in poor weather this afternoon, plus 15+ Wigeon and several groups of Redwings dropping out of the sky. Twitched by train to Pontlottyn then bike to Rhaslas....how sustainable is that!

Bravo Monsieur Bristow, you'll be pleased to hear that you've won our sustainable birder of the year award 2013. A pair of golden cycle clips and a part used tube of anusol (donated by an anonymous birder, merci beaucoup mon amie)is on its way to you as I write.

If you'd have cycled all the way you would have won this year's star prize, a lightly raced but still beautiful Bianci Nirone.

The day list record 'on a bike' for Cardiff stands at 77 species. A record easily within grasp....we did 75 by about 1pm a few New Years ago before the heavens opened and we went home in a soggy mess.
