Wryneck at Earlswood Golf Course

On a particularly slow day for migrants this Wryneck livened things up dramatically. It was first seen this morning around 11:00 and didn't show too well. However, on return to the area with Charles Hipkin at around 13:30 it gave much better views and showed off and on till 14:00 when we left it. It seems pretty loyal to the damp track between the golf course and the Neath River. This area is best accessed by parking on the turn off to the Ferry Boat Inn (SS72949392) and following the track around the back of the golf course, through the wood and 80m beyond the wood to the open area with a wet track (SS73119367). The bird was showing all along the track on both sides.
