I got up at 5:15 this morning with the intention of going back to Coed Llandegla to try see once more to see the Black Grouse. The good news was that the weather was pretty good it was cold but there was no low cloud and no sign of rain either. So I wrapped up warm and set off. What I hadn’t realised was that the climb to the hide via the public footpath was much steeper than the walk I had last week in the mist
When I arrived at the hide I was pleased to see to gents who had been with us on the walk on friday they had the good news that the grouse were present and showing well. What a relief! The grouse are beautiful bird with big white back ends and lovely red tufts above the eyes. I am very relieved to have seen them.
There were other great birds in the area including a Redstart two Redpoll and a couple of Garden Warblers.
I also visited Worlds End today where I had good views of a Tree Pipit.
My last visit of the day was to Inner Marsh Farm where I was please to find lots of Warblers and Black Tailed Godwits. The best bird hear was probably the Cuckoo that decided to sit on a fence for a couple of minutes.
