Llandod Lake, The Golf Course and The Rock Park Coffee House & Tea Room.

We called over to Llandod today to check out the new Rock Park Coffee House and Tea Room, but not before a spot of birding. On the town lake there were 14 Goosander and a pair of Tufted duck, on the reeds there was a female Reed Bunting, and in the back ground 2 Woodpeckers were drumming, close by in the woodlands there were 5 Siskin and numerous Goldcrest, Long-tailed Tit, Coal Tit and a calling Chiffchaff.

Upon the Golf Course 50 + Fieldfare flew over, 20 + Chaffinch were on a feeder, in the pines there were 12 + Siskin, 12 + Linnet and 2 Great Spotted Woodpecker. In the Church yard there were 3 Bullfinch.

And finally The Rock Park Coffee House & Tea Room, which comes well recommend, please support if your in the area. Outside on the river/stream a Dipper, and high above in the tree canopies Goldcrest and Coal Tit calling.

    I was there on the same day – one of the male Goosander is an beautiful shade of salmon pink – one of the brightest I’ve seen .
    The lake is a great place to get good views of these birds .
