Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

Head up­stream be­tween the Og­more and the Ewenny rivers, mak­ing sure to check the gull flocks, care­fully. The waders should in­clude Lap­wing, Oys­ter­catcher, Curlew and Red­shank.

1A di­gres­sion away from the es­tu­ary into the dry val­leys to search for song­birds is al­ways worth­while, es­pe­cially at mi­gra­tion times. Ring Ouzel, Firecrest and Yel­low-browed War­bler have been seen and Buz­zard, Kestrel and Pere­grine may soar over­head or a Spar­rowhawk hur­tle past.

2The two tiny is­lands, Plo­ran Mawr and Por­to­bello, are de­scribed as the best place in Glam­or­gan in au­tumn to find Lit­tle Stints, and at­tract both gulls and waders. Through­out the year, look for Grey Herons and Lit­tle Egrets.

3Gull flocks noted in­clude Mediter­ranean, Lit­tle, Ring-billed, Glau­cous and Ice­land Gulls. Pur­ple Sand­pipers and Turnstones are on the rocky shore and Red-throated Divers out at sea.
