Quiet but quality this morning. Spotted Flycatcher 80 m beyond the dragonfly pond on the left. Male Goshawk over Cogan Wood then lost to view. Then to to top all an imm Hobby seen from the main bridge circling around over the play area then drifted off west. Hobby and Gos I think new site ticks for me.

Some interest this morning. A fem/imm Common Redstart was in the long hedgerow by west paddock and a Kingfisher flew across E lake. Also an interesting gull on E lake found by Lol Middleton which cd be a candidate for Caspian although opinion is that the upper parts are rather dark.  These are my best 2 cropped shots. Lol got a couple of good shots when it was closer - see the South Wales Birding Facebook page, or the Glamorgan Rarities Committee blog.

Lots of people this morning, but away from the crowds, took a few snaps. Didn't even take my binos!.
