Cold winter days and grey skies at Ynys-hir bcome alive with the flight of not one, but two Marsh harrier, seen regularly for the last week on the wetland areas. One vsitor even managed to catch one of them on camera eating a shelduck from Ynys Feurig hide.

Hen harrier also almost a daily sighting as well as peregrine over the grassland/saltmarsh areas.

On the pools and estuary, pintail, shoveller, wigeon, teal and great white egret are showing nicley. Lapwing, redshank, grey plover, black-tailed godwit, curlew and green sandpier to be seen.

Most of the Barnacle geese have moved off but greylag geese and of course the wintering group of Greenland whitefronted geese are stiil to be seen.
