Llandegfedd Reservoir

Main Sighting:
2/5/2003 Enjoyable afternoon at llandegfedd res.Very close views grazing Wigeon from the new hide(N.end],breeding plumage GC grebes displaying in entrance bay and superb Kingfisher just outside B.Hamar hide.Flock of 150 Lapwing in a field on NW side inc.1 leucistic bird.Flock accompanied by 30 BH Gulls which were very adept at stealing their food .In fact the Lapwings frequently gave up their meals with very little argument.Perhaps it`s easier to find another worm than to waste precious energy on being harassed by a persistent gull!
