During an evening walk tonight, we were surprised to see a very large bird approaching us above the canal at Burgedin locks, near Arddleen. As it came nearer, we were surprised and delighted to see that it was an osprey, heading northwestwards. It passed right over our heads, at just above tree height before disappearing from view.
Other highlights this week included great views of 2 hobbies on Sunday at Dolydd Hafren - catching insects, and then one perching and preening for 15 minutes or so in a large willow beyond the 2nd hide.
Then on Monday, the nuthatch using a nestbox fitted with a camera in the garden, hatched 5 or 6 young - she is still 'incubating' them most of the time, and the male brings insects to her - she then feeds her young, and occasionally leaves the box to share in the finding of food. Once or twice both adults have been in the box together, sharing in the feeding - it's all compulsive viewing!
