This morning at Dolydd Hafren (along with John M) we had good views of an osprey being mobbed by crows. In the first field there were circa 200 linnet and 4 stock doves. From the second hide 2 whitefront geese were showing well also 3 greylag, 4 oystercatchers, 4 shelduck and 3 little ringed plovers. 26 dunlin passed through the reserve. Among other birds seen were 5 (singing) chiffchaff, 2 willow warbler, 3 goldcrest, 1 treecreeper, 2 bullfinch, 1 jay and 33 fieldfare. 2 bramblings were seen (decreasing from the c.50 we saw last week).
