Mid day Llandod Lake.

Decided to have crack at the reed warbler just before  a late Lunch and he did come out for a while, though not the throat vibrating song on the top of the reeds  far too cold for that, a few Reed buntings and a fem black cap came to see what all the fuss was about. .One pair of  G.C Grebes sitting.. on the fringes of the Island being watched in close proximity by three B.H gulls ( I wish they would B…….r Off) they have surely been the demise of several broods in the past.. rotters they are.  I have not seen a sign of the other pair for at least 10 days… saying that they are likely to appear out of the blue carrying young. This morning on our sunday const down the river Ithon:- sighted 2 Kingfishers, Heron, chiffies, willow warbs Pieds and Redstarts…A pair of sparrow hawks ( yes a pair never seen two together before) they were giving grief to what looked like a water rail right in the margins of the river, saw us and  flew off across the river and perched in a tree, then this poor water rail ( I think) came ripping out and flew across and got into some brushwood last seen.014

Blackcaps in the patch.

003Female Black cap, not the best…. looks like she’s just evaded the clutches of next doors cat… The male was singing beautifully a top the lilac bush in the early hours this morn….a fabulous alarm call.  We have got two pairs close to the house… one in the patch and another across the railway line. I don’t know if its me but there seems to be more than usual about.
