Merthyr in South Wales probably isn’t anyone’s idea of a good birdwatching spot. Well this winter has proved that it has great potential for gull watching. I know, gulls again but spring is one its way soon and I’ll be able to blog about something else! Anyway, back to Merthyr. This place has probably featured on several of those rubbish TV programmes such as ‘Britains roughest housing estates’ or ‘Neighbours from hell’ but due to its lovely landfill site its now attracting a rather different crowd of people.
Noticed today on the Glamorgan website that a potential 3rd winter Caspian Gull was present today and after looking at the pictures, it shows a few pro Caspian features but really hard to say. I am looking forward to going back to Wales next week to do some more gull grilling.
P.S I rather stupidly forgot to take a photo of the Iceland Gull but readers of this blog are probably sick to death of Iceland Gulls.
P.P.S Notice what I did with the title. Named the county and beautifully described Merthyr! Clever eh?
