01/02/2023 at Usk Valley

CALLING ALL BIRDERS - an important meeting is planned for Friday 8th March 7 - 8.30pm at Henderson Hall, Talybont-on-Usk. Now that the Welsh Government as landowner have declared their intentions, the launch of a volunteer group 'Usk Valley Ospreys' will take place then. It is being formed to support and monitor the breeding pair, which if there is sufficient support will hopefully develop into an Osprey Tourism venture. Please come to the meeting (free tickets bookable through Eventbrite) and show your support. Thank you.

24/01/2024 at Gull roost counts

National UK Winter Gull Survey (BTO) - a survey last carried out 20yrs ago so should provide useful data considering Red Listing & Avian Flu situations. Main roosts at Llangorse Lake & Pontsticill Reservoir were selected. The last fortnight (required count period) have been difficult with icing, two storms, etc so count options limited and less than ideal. Here are the figures that will be submitted: LL = 2070 Lesser Bl-backed, 1068 Bl-h Gulls, 422 Herring Gulls, 15 Common Gull, 2 Gt Bl-b Gulls............and for Pontsticill its 2157 Herring Gull, 22 Lesser BBG, 4 Great BBG. Thanks to Keith Noble for helping out. Others will need to step forward in 2044!
