Bird Safari

Todays Elan Valley Bird Safari.

Again the weather was against us from the start. With a full house on board, excellent views were had of Dipper, Spotted Flycatcher, Crossbill and parachuting Tree Pipits.

Under the circumstances we did quite well, an incredible 42 species were recorded in just a few hours.

Many thanks to all of you who turned up for this event.
