Delighted to see Bramblings still today , but back to the snow! Like others , we have seen a Reed Bunt. At the lake GCGs performing weed dance( whenever I do not have the camera ) and Shoveler returns to grab bread!!! Several Tufties and Gadwall pair…fingers Xed! No mention re gulls!Sorry M.!
There are at least three pair of Skylark up on the common.
Delightful to hear them singing, Managed to spot this one this morning just sat reasonably close.
Where have all the Chiffchaffs gone ? A single record of a bird down Claerwen on Saturday 17th March, no signs of any more since this date ?
A couple of Wheatears did put in an appearance today.
Grebe gobbling a hapless Perch @ L’dod Lake; Heron up Rhogo looking for frogs and Stonechat pair-no Wheatears yet , but must be soon.
Brambling today at bird feeders with the Chaffinches. Also two Long Tailed Tits, first ones this year, wondered where they had got to.
Up on Llanbister common this morning a flock of Golden Plover flew in over my head. around 20-25 individuals.
Well mini beast from the East has passed ..almost and things seem to survive : Water Rails fine ; Shoveler back; Gadwall pair o.k.; Grebes performing with gusto ; Reed Bunts fine and Marsh Tits thriving . Guess everyone’s food contribution helps.
