Siskin Llandod.

We have a regular visit of a 8/9 siskins to the feeders…also bringing their young to feed…..This young female brightened up a miserable morning by feeding in the heart of some of our garden phlox.

Desert Wheatear @ Elan???

Sadly I guess it’s an immature , abnormal ,normal Wheatear!!! We got about 50 yards away when it was off across Craig Goch just past Hirnant farm, so no views of tail etc.Never mind , it was quite exciting.

Here we are again after exciting times in the Highlands! Garden full of young things mostly looking quite drab-this time of year is not exciting for photographers as moulting is under way. Lots of Greenfinches, Gold ,Chaffs and a family of Bullfinches,plus the usual. Sparrow contingent has doubled-doing remarkably well.DSC_0288_filtered copy

Common sandpipers Llandod lake.

Pleasing to see 4 common sandpipers perched on the sideways leaning alder branches above where the Grt Crested grebes had a 3rd attempt to nest and breed ( what is happening with them such a pity) this at approx 11am this morn.

Lapwing @ Painscastle

(via Elwyn73) 21 Lapwing on cut field above Painscastle and 1 Curlew. Two more Curlew seen while heading over Llanbedr / Rhulen Hill in the vehicle , I try to keep away from the area during the breeding season, but do I dare take it as a positive sign that there are still Curlew present well into July?

Visitor to the lake Llandod.

Identified by Colin Williams… A young Fem shell duck visited yesterday quite content to sit with the noisy mob on the lake island platform….good size comparison to the Lesser black backed gull on the extreme left as we see it….poor quality distant record shot.
