Garganey at Llanilid

Alun Hughes has found a drake Garganey at Llanilid this evening.  Not absolutely sure on which pond the bird was showing but, I think it is on one of the 2 ponds on the south of the site around SS990808?
The Black-necked Grebe was also present today per John Wilson on the small pond nearby. As has been mentioned before, this area is quite sensitive area and it is recommended that you remain on the tracks when moving between the ponds.

Thanks to Alun for the call informing me of the drake Garganey (and the lend of his bins). It was on the westernmost of the pools at the south of the site, approx SS986811. Please keep to the paths if possible.
