Just spent 4 days in Montgomeryshire,with majority of time at Pwll Penarth. Summary; 2 pair Little grebe, one of which appears to be sitting. Little egret dropped in sat. at 7.30am and left after 2 snatched photos. King fishers showing on occasion. Sand martins actively in and out of their burrows. warblers include Chiff Chaff, Willow, sedge, reed, Garden, and Blackcap. Common Sand Pipers around and about. Saturday PM went to my favorite place Rounton Hill in the hope of photographing Redstart and Pied Flycatchers.Could not believe it when I found a work party clearing all branches from around nest boxes and thinning out trees and replacing old nest boxes with new.Needless to say no sign of target birds.What idiot organised this work for first week in May.Walked around hill and saw Linnet, Whitethroat, Raven, Buzzard, Kestrel, 3 Red kite, Willow Warbler, Chiff Chaff, Meadow Pipit, and Sky Lark.
Had to go out of area for Red Start etc.
