2 Velvet Scoter off the beach today. Seen from the west end quite far out SS6991. The Great Crested Grebe numbered 40, with more in the distance nearer the Port Talbot Docks end of Aberavon Beach. 1 Red-throated Diver also present.
Also today a queen Bombus terrestris flying around searching for a nest site. A large Bumblebee with a buff tail which looked yellow on the Bumblebee I saw today. This feature helps separate the species from Bombus lucorum which has a white tail and can also be seen flying around in February.
