Black Redstart and Newport bridge

From Clare Ryland:

A male black redstart has been present on a rocky outcrop opposite our house near Dinas for the last 5 days.

A visit to Newport bridge yesterday afternoon, fortunately still within cycling distance!  revealed 6 goosander (1 male), 1 common sandpiper and large numbers of both blackbirds and song thrushes. Also 8 snipe seen from the bridge as well.
