Birding Events.

Yesterday evening saw the final Elan Valley birding event this year, all the events were a great success, thank you to all of you who came along, I would like to thank Alan, Lee, Kris, Dominic, Polly, Alex and Sally for all there support, some of the highlights for me was a Goshawk above the visitor centre car park, Rob finding that Grasshopper Warbler at Craig Goch and those parachuting Tree Pipits, at times the bird songs from our summer visitors in the woodlands was quite spectacular, other birds included Green Woodpecker, Siskins, Redpolls and excellent views of a singing juvenile male Crossbill at Garreg Ddu, Cormorant, Mandarin, Goosander, 2 Common Sandpiper on Claerwen dam, also down Claerwen a Dipper feeding its young at the nest at such close quarters was amazing, there were lots of Cuckoos about, and a Buzzard on her nest, which now has 2 growing fast youngsters on board, and Stock Doves were everywhere,

Keep Birding 🙂
