Cormorant @ L’dod lake.

Well, we have one back already ! Reed Warbs still with us , but going about their business very quietly now. A brief interlude with very few Canadas- only 6 . At Cefnllys, a Nuthatch playing ‘catch’ with a bit of peanut-pretty clever I must say.

Tawny Owls hooting away at 3-00am this morning along riverside walk, waking us all up, that`s what happens when you leave your windows open during the warm weather. Viv and Pips House Martins have finally left the nest, also the Swifts next door have also taken to the big sky, still a few flying over town 20+. A few juv Spotted Flycatchers about from the nest opposite, and a Peregrine seen a few times flying over town chasing Pigeons. Elsewhere things are quiet on the river due to the amount swimmers enjoying the sunshine.

75+ Hirundines, 50+ Crows, 20+ Mippits, and single  Stonechat, Whinchat, and Reed Bunting. On the river in front of otter hide there was a ringed adult Dipper. A very impressive display of rowan berries awaits our winter visitors.
