Pair of Wheatear seen on our 16th hole on two seperate days…fingers crossed…been at least 5 years since bred. Male looked big. Northern species ? Good numbers of Linnet and Redpoll. We have a Sparrowhawk causing carnage around the course. Seen her regularly. Snipe on 13th pond. Lots of Pied Wagtails.

Dipper in Hailstorm!

Sometimes , I KNOW I’m mad! I waited 45 mins for this guy near Hundred House and he arrived in the midst of a hailstorm yesterday , which caught me with no hat or coat! However , I was going to get that pic willy nilly!!! Note the hailstone on his head.

Elan Valley.

Yesterday, the lull before the storm! Peaceful after the melee…I know , we need the visitors! Curlew in evidence-just after I inform Susan that they always sing in flight, this one made me look silly by bursting into his bubbling song as he strolled nonchalantly round near Hirnant. A Whinchat obliged-still only 2 to be seen and a passage of Wheatears-a dozen or so. Finally , a Stoat by the old bridge leading to Elan village  ( featured briefly in Hinterland last week-bridge not Stoat!).

Elan.

Off we go! Again….Pied flies , Reds  and Robins-sadly , the latter have a propensity for attacking anything reddish and kept chasing the Redstart-BUT they had a go at the Pied Flies ,who soon saw them off .Thanks to Rob I then found the Wood Warb -up top . They are a wee bit later than the res as per..Later I saw one Stonechat and at undiclosed site… A Shorty. Heard a Curlew in the distance. No sign of Whins._DSC6091_filtered copy
