Clytha Cutting

Main Sighting:
1 Woodcock at Clytha Cutting I also saw one on 31st October at the same place. Also spent all day watching a Cormorant fishing on the swolen River Monnnow from the office window. I was quite amazed at how long the bird stopped under the water and then appeared without being washed downstream when the river is at its heighest.
