The end of the school holidays signals a change in the Seasons.Most of the visiting summer migrants such as the redstarts and pied flycatchers have left to make their journeys south. Last week saw the leaving of this season's Dyfi Osprey Chicks, one visitor was lucky enough to watch one of the 3 young catch a fish and devour it before heading south. Barnacle geese began arriving back at the end of August and we have enjoyed some lovely views of black tailed godwit on the pools at Marian Mawr. WEBS count this week with the high tides.
Along with the turning of the Season we welcome two other visitor who will be with us over the Winter months, Theo and Ben are our two new interns who are here to get stuck in and learn about the managment of the reserve. You will be hearing more from them in the coming months.
Recent sightings include: green sandpiper, marsh harrier, osprey, whinchat, cetti's warbler, lesser spotted flycatcher, green shank with wonderful views of kingfisher.
We spend 90% of net income on conservation, public education and advocacy
