Just to catch you all up on what’s been happening at Newport Wetlands if you haven’t yet had a chance to read Hana’s blog.
The past two months have been filled with sightings of all our regular birds, including long tailed tits, redwing, reed bunting and wigeon. We’ve had flocks of lapwing circling our skies and bullfinches playing up for the ladies. The Uskmouth reedbeds have greeted redshank, our lagoons pintail, wigeon, teal, gadwall and pochard.
The past week’s seen Marsh harrier, little owl, kestrel, stonechat, bullfinch, water rail, water pipit and heard Cetti’s warbler singing away in the reeds. But the bird most spoken about the past few weeks is this beautiful lady! A female hen harrier that’s making quite a habit of dining just outside our visitor’s centre!
