Please note that:

1). Re. Gadwall:

In the species account for Gadwall, in the recently published Gwent Bird Report, the table of monthly maxima is incorrect. The corrected version of the table (included with the full account for context) is as follows -

Gadwall

Apart from the two main sites of NWR and Llanwern, numbers were generally lower that last year. Monthly maxima at sites with records in at least 3 months are tabulated below.

Otherwise there were scattered records of very small numbers at another six sites: Wentwood Reservoir, up to 6 in Jan/Feb; Ynysyfro Reservoir, 2 in Dec; The Warrage, 2 in Aug; Magor Marsh, 3 in Jan and 2 in Apr; Collister Pill, 2 in May, 3 in Sep; Llandegfedd Reservoir, 2 in July (AA, DMSSJT, BB, C&DJ, SRS).

Breeding: At least 3 pairs bred successfully at Llanwern Steelworks (PO’D), and one pair at NWR (ND).

2) Re. Grey Heron

In the Grey Heron species account, the record of 28 at West Usk lighthouse on 16th Feb, is incorrect. The sentence containing this reference should be removed in its entirety.
