Bird news from across North Wales and beyond
Kev. Where is Llay pool? Assumed when saw news it was Gresford Flash
Park rd off the B5102 between Cefn-y-Bedd and Llay. Bird was distant when I found it but soon seemed to favour a patch of water at the southern end within easy view of the roadside.
Great find Duncan. Llay pool is quite close to Mold to Wrexham road as Duncan says. Turn left at the Hollybush pub in Cefn y Bedd if coming from Mold. Immediately after the wooded area there is a tight right turn to Park road. Cracking pool that in the last year has flooded each winter period. Was great for passage waders last spring and has potential for something good. Prone to disturbance but always worth a look If passing.
Still there this morning
Cheers chaps. Good find Duncan - I was the guy who you met in the Landrover just leaving today. Photos on my blog - if you want any for this blog just let me know (my blog link is opposite - Wirral Birders)
Nice pics Phil. It's a handy pool to visit en route to my work in Mold, especially in spring when the water recedes and leaves mud. 7 species of wader last spring.
Showing well this afternoon around 3ish a Ross's Goose there too with Greylag and Canadas feral im sure!!
There are two ross's geese around Llay/fagl lane /Gresford area. At least one been around for 5 years now. plastic I'm afraid. Nice though.
