Bittern by turning for Kenfig Ind. Est.

Dave Carrington wrote 'Derek Dykes called in at Kenfig today to enquire about a bird that he had seen with his father at 4pm yesterday. He had photographed it with his phone. I was surprised when I saw the picture. It was taken near Pont Bwriac SS805834 just over the border in NPT. In the picture it appears injured but Deryk assured me the bird was alright. It walked off through a hedge and along a stream. I popped over this morning to see if it was in need of care but had no luck finding it.'
Sounds like this one might have had a lucky escape after being stunned by a vehicle, but worth looking out for if anyone is passing, just in case it has a longer-term injury. (contact Gower Bird Hospital if necessary http://www.gowerbirdhospital.org.uk/)
