COMMON YELLOWTHROAT in Gwent

The Welsh COMMON YELLOWTHROAT has been present since last Friday but only positively identified today. Five people saw the bird this afternoon and negotiated access arrangements with locals.

The bird is in Gwent west of Newport at Rhiwderyn. It is frequenting a number of hedgerows in farmland and seems to be following a well-rehearsed circuit around them and special temporary access has been granted by the local landowner. The gates to the field will NOT be opened until 0700 hours and access to the car park field is only possible by a single track narrow lane. Therefore,DO NOT arrive any earlier as this will create disruption to a number of local residents.

From the A468, take Pentre Porth Road southwestwards for about a mile before turning right opposite the sign for The Farmer's Daughter restaurant and park in the specially designated field (£3 per car charge)
