Nice day in Neath

The Neath Estuary from time to time throws up some great days birding. Today was one of those days. I usually access the river from the Neath Canal via the Square Pond. I had a brief encounter with a fem/imm Black Redstart in the field with horses opposite the Metal Box playing fields. In the same field was a rather obliging Water Rail.
The estuary was full of life with Dabchick, Little Egret, Teal, Mallard, Goosander and Lapwing all in good numbers as well as plenty of Gulls.
As it turned out I wasn't the only one keeping watch over the estuary!
