Luke Robinson is with us at Lake Vyrnwy as a long term volunteer.
He with, other volunteer colleagues, was out working on the northern side of the reserve, close to the forestry. They flushed out a Woodcock on the side of the path, which excited them since one of the party had not before seen this species.
This is the time of the year, at a full moon, when it should be possible to see more of these secretive birds, as locally it is known as a “Woodcock moon arrival.”
The Lake Vyrnwy reserve is full of hidden secrets, why not visit soon!
