Lisvane Res.

Two Black Terns still present today. You can drive in from Lisvane entrance & view from the carpark. Birds showing well this afternoon. 
Of note: WW have now taken over the management of the reservoirs and maintinence  work will commence soon. I understand that they want to start sailing there again and plan to build a information centre with cafe facilities.
The minor road known as Green Lane from Wentloog to St. Mellons is closed to traffic at the St. Mellons end due to work on the railway bridge. For local birders coming from Wentloog, you go as far as the Cardiff end but have to go back the way you came.
