Cosmeston & Lavernock

Lol Middleton and Andy Burns had a Common Redstart and a Lesser Whitethroat in the conservation area near the gate. The latter was still singing when I was there, and a Common Sand was by W lake. I had a G S Pecker drumming and calling in Cogan Wood and there were 3 Buzzards circling and a couple of Sparrowhawks were seen by Lol & co. 3 Blackcaps were singing near the Med. Village and 2 others seen, and a Cetti’s was singing by the ‘new’ dipping pond.

At Lavernock, sadly it seems that sone serious vandalism has been meted out at the WWII gun battery which is a historical monument. I understand from the Cossie park ranger that the police, Cadw and Vale staff were there this morning. Very sad that some people are so mindless as to do this sort of thing for 'fun'.
