Sunset at Machynys
Down at the pond a single Pochard was accompanied by the calls of a Sedge Warbler but sadly the usual flock of Swifts that have entertained us in previous years were entirely absent. Does this match the generally low numbers being reported elsewhere? At least the Skylarks were still about and we watched two birds having a dust bath on the path right in front of us. I got the impression that they weren't entirely seeing eye to eye as in the midst of a deep clean there was still plenty of wing flapping and aggressive displaying going on. Also of interest was a Rabbit hopping about on the beach which I presume lives amongst the large rocks of the breakwater.
