Elan

Yesterday, no real luck with the Thrush family-too distant , but Sue had a Kingfisher in the village and I saw 2 Dippers arguing there-failed to get pics ! Tried Claerwen and had a dozen visiting Blackbirds with 2 Ouzels mixd in at the foot of the dam , on the only Rowan there.On the way home past Hirnant, things looked up with first an immature Kestrel , glowing in the afternoon sun and then an adult fem.
