Fairly sure there was an osprey at Llangorse lake Saturday afternoon. I was about 4-500m away out on the water but not much else flies like one, great lolloping wing beats, not a GBB gull. Lapwings, kingfisher (near the island), chiffchaffs heard and loads of interesting ducks that I am not so good at identifying!

Another barn Owl last night but this one was hunting the A470 between Brecon and Libanus. A Little Egret was again under the brecon bypass bridge this afternoon with two more at Llangorse Lake along with a Great White Egret. Driving over Mynydd Illtyd late afternoon I saw a female Kestrel.

Finally excited to confirm today my partner's sighting over last couple of days of what he thought was a Hawfinch. Indeed it is - on the patio feeding on spilled sunflower hearts 5ft from the window !! Clearly it has been in the vicinity for at least 3 days now - a first for our garden.
