Llandrindod Lake.

Out of the valleys and away from the mountains today, with an away ticket to Llandrindod Lake. On arrival a friend tells me it was built as a boating lake, and she remembers the boats on the lake.

In the middle of the lake, a water sculpture was holding 5 Cormorants, on the sides plenty of Mallards (20+), a few Moorhen, Canada Geese and Mute Swans all being fed by the locals. A Red-crested Pochard type x hybrid looked interesting for a while. Walking past the biggest Roland Rattus Norvegicus ive ever seen and into the trees, birds included: Great Spotted Woodpecker, Song and Mistle Thrush, Chiffchaff with a few Goldcrest, a few Coal Tits, Tree Creeper and Nuthatch, and on the alders 3 Siskins. Flyovers included 14 Woodpigeon, 6 Fieldfare with 1 Redwing and 4 Stock Dove.
