Park Wood, Bassaleg

Main Sighting: Willow Tit
Took part in the national Willow Tit survey today, but sadly no sign of the species in this woodland that used to hold them. Plenty of other things of interest however: Crossbill, Siskin, displaying Buzzard and a Raven - flying out from a lambing shed! Some early bluebells already in flower. There are still some remaining areas in the county where we are looking for people to survey for Willow Tit. If you think you can help please drop me a line at surveys at gwentbirds.org.uk.
