Lakeside reeds

People moaning and wanting them cut down again, heated discussions taking place on Llandrindod Solutions facebook page. 😦

100 + House Martins flew over this evening, heading south, while 30 + Swifts remain in the town. There are at least 3 Kingfishers flying back and forth on the Wye, with the odd Dipper flying through, and a single juv Spotted Flycatcher is still on it`s breeding grounds.

Kingfisher at Shaky Bridge

No photo, unfortunately but our first sighting today for almost a year!

A few interesting images for you: One from the garden (add own caption!), one from previously that turned out to be a fledged/juvenile Wheatear, not a Whinchat as previously thought and a Cirl Bunting from south Devon – I know it’s not from around here but they are exceptionally rare and many folk may not have seen one before 🙂
