Ynys-y-fro migrant magnet

A quick outing produced one House Martin, 3 Willow Warbler, 16 Sand Martin, 10+ Swallow and a Chiffchaff or two at Newport's premier concrete lined wetland this evening. Very few wildfowl now though, presumably the upshot of seried ranks of fisher-folk standing gnome-like around the perimeter and the increasingly towering presence of the development currently being built right on top of what ought to be a County Wildlife Site/Site of Nature Conservation Importance/Site of Importance for Nature Conservation/whatever they call this sort of thing round here. How many such sites has Newport Tinpot Town Council designated by the way?
