20/03/20. Cors Caron nature reserve, Ceredigion

Cors Caron: A nature reserve comprising a large raised bog near Tregaron.  Spectacular setting,  and I had it all to myself on the spring equinox this year.  I left home at 3:30am and got there by 5:15 or so; then walked into the reserve to make this recording.  I started recording at about 5:45 (sunrise was at 6:15 or so).

The recording here is about 13 minutes sampled over an hour from 5:45 – 6:45am.

It was wonderful; relatively quiet (some planes, though diminished perhaps a little by the coronavirus efforts); some traffic down to Tregaron.  The variety of birds was fantastic; I don’t recognise them all, but here are a few that are on the recording:

  • Barn Owl
  • Canada Goose
  • Greylag Goose
  • Curlew
  • Buzzard
  • Tawny Owl
  • Wren
  • Whimbrel
  • Pheasant

    Just sitting there and listening was wonderful.   Barn owls screeching; Canada geese restlessly preparing to take off; flights overhead by Canada Geese and Greylag Geese; Curlew and Whimbrel and Buzzard in a nearby field.   Magical morning in a magical place.
