Claerwen: The nesting underground Swallows are back. Seeing a Garden Warbler at the dam wall was unusual, there was a Sparrowhawk hunting through the Beechs, causing havoc and confusion with the local birds of prey, also a few Whinchats, Stonechats, Wheatears and Singing Skylarks.

Elsewhere 12 Lesser Black-backed Gulls dropped in at Penygarreg, after a heavy rain storm, and 5 Whinchats between Hirnant farm/Pont ar Elan. If you are a fan of “Hinterland”, Elan Valley is the place to be.
